    Smile I desperately want to know what the answer is!

    Q. A[Although] Johnson was the captain of our high school track team, and B[was hailed as] the fastest
    man on the team, I have C[no doubt] of D[my being able] to run fster than E[his] today.

    Which one is incorrect?

    I think this sentence is perfect, but the answer is E.

    I think "his (being able to run)" places in juxtaposition with "my being able to run".

    Is my thought wrong? If so, please answer me! :)

    * Not a teacher

    It does not look like a juxtaposition to me. I would go for "him", it is a comparison.
    Not a teacher.
    Not a native speaker.
    Just a language lover who is majoring in English.
