OA - E
Pronoun "we" does not have any antecedent. The sentence talks about Harry Truman so correct version would be "He was" in place of "we were"

IMO, the answer is (E)

The sentence talks about Harry Truman and how he felt about his job.

(A) we were glad to have any job at all. - Incorrect. The pronoun "we" does not have any antecedent. The sentence focusses on only Harry Truman.
(B) we was glad to have any job at all. - Incorrect. The pronoun "we" does not have any antecedent. The sentence focusses on only Harry Truman. Moreover, we is plural. So "we was" is wrong.

(C) they were glad to have any job at all. - Incorrect. The pronoun "they" does not have any antecedent. The sentence focusses on only Harry Truman.

(D) one was glad to have any job at all. - Incorrect. The sentence clearly talks about only Harry Truman. So "one" is wrong here which can refer to anybody.
(E) he was glad to have any job at all. - Correct. This sentence clearly uses the pronoun "he" to refer Harry Truman.

(A) we were glad to have any job at all. (Harry Truman is singular person. So the correct pronoun must be 'He')
(B) we was glad to have any job at all. (Same as A)
(C) they were glad to have any job at all. (Same as A)
(D) one was glad to have any job at all. (Harry Truman is specific person. So there is no need to use 'one')
(E) he was glad to have any job at all. (Correct)

Kudos please if you like my explanation!

be alert. This is a self-made question, and the question seems not to be good.
