I dont see any wrong construction in original sentence.
The answer as you know is A
Reason Correct idiom
'So.... that'
Now lets check whats wrong with other options.

B)seems to compare two things witht the term 'AS' which is not the case here: discard
C) has word 'SO'in the middle of the sentence but it's not followed by correct idiom (that):Discard
D)Awkward start ( there might be some other errors also)
E)wrong idiom 'SO...why' :Discard

why not option b

By Blogger p, at April 04, 2007 3:48 AM  

B is not correct because it seems to suggest that work force is poorly educated and trained as are the business executives.
The comparision is not correct

What i want to know is that why is D an awkward start
It is something like That AAA (some situtation) is why BBB (the reason).
Please suggest?

Analysis:

Idiom: So X that Y

X = Cause
Y = Effect

A. X = So poorly educated and trained are many young recruits to the United States work force
Y = many business executives fear this country will lose its economic preeminence.

Look OK sofar.

B. Wrong - No comparison AS x AS is wrong usage

C. Wrong need conjunction NOT two word preposition

Because of - is a two - word preposition, used before a noun or a pronoun.

Because - is a conjunction, used at the beginning of a clause, before a subject and verb

D. Wrong

That ... can not use So - without so construction is correct

E. Wrong
exhibits subject-verb disagreement: young recruits ... explains why.

Answer: A
