Young man, _____________ you may come the greatest leader that the world had ever had. I see a great promise in you.

a. besides

b. forward

c. out of

d. because of


I think the answer for the blank is besides and wonder I'm right.

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' ?

"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.
