    None of the answers are good. "Out of" is the only one that makes any sense at all.

    But 'out of' is prepositional phrase and can't be followed a clause.

    Other Korean teacher said the answer is 'forward' meaning 'in the future'.

    Will it be ok to put 'forward' ?

    No. Forget this question exists.

    "Out of you may come the greatest leader the world has ever had" is possible but unlikely.

    It's followed by a pronoun in your sentence.
