I think that it should be 'Being the eldest son, his father expects him to take care of several things besides his regular studies'.

i.e. there is an error in part A.

Ubtej said: (Aug 31, 2012)  
I think that in option A "he" should be replaced by "Him".

According to me, it should be, "He being the elder son, his father expects him to take care of several things besides his regular studies".

Being the eldest son, seems good.

When son is already being mentioned above, implies that is a male.

According to me, What @Rahul & @Harjot are saying is absolutely correct.

Iris said: (Jan 17, 2015)  
If "Being the eldest son" is right, then the person that is mentioned after that must be the son not "his father".

For example: Being tired, I decide to take a rest.

Venkat said: (Aug 3, 2015)  
I think ' he being' is wrong.

Rahul said: (Aug 15, 2015)  
Why not "As being the eldest son", instead of "He being the eldest son"?

'Eldest' is a grammatical wrong word.

I think A is the correct answer.

I think it should be like that: He being the eldest brother, his father expects him.
