    inversion

    ---- was his determination to succeed that he paid little attention to those around him.

    a) Such
    b) So much
    c) So
    d) Quite

    I'm for the option "b", but is the option "a" also possible?

    I`d choose [a].

    So determined was John to succeed that he paid little attention to those around him.
