i concur - i read on another GMAT forum that "so as ..." is almost always incorrect on the GMAT - is that so ?

Agree with D

resident of X is the correct idiom

so X .. that he decided to .. is correct

other choices I think change the meaning

even though the idiom makes sense for me

the PM was so moved ... that he decided to offer ..

looks better than

the PM was so moved ... as to offer ...

kkarank, can you tell where did you get this question?
