    Of/From

    Can anyone please explain to me why (according to TOEIC study guides) the first sentence begins with OF and the second with FROM?

    1. Of all those applying, Mr. Jamison was the most experienced applicant.

    2. From all those applying for the position, Mr. Jamison was the one chosen, as he was the most experienced.

    Thank you!
