I'm preparing for an exam on Use of English and doing tons of mock papers.

I came across the following question:-

Question: The audience stood up to give a big hand after ________________ (Fill in the blank)

a. a excellent performance of him,
b. a excellent performance of his.
c. a excellent performance of he.
d. the excellence performance of his.
e. the excellent performance of him.

I picked D, but the answer key said it should be E. Could you help me out here guys? Much appreciated!

    They're all wrong, but for different reasons (sometimes more than one). The first three would have to be "an excellent...," "the excellence performance" is wrong, and "of him" is wrong.

    I agree with grassy and The Newt. All the options in post 1 are wrong:(.
