Onset is the meaning equivalent to beginning and not outset I think.

Outset - the time at which something is supposed to begin; "they got an early start"; "she knew from the get-go that he was the man for her".

Eg: It clear at the outset that he is not going to quit his job.

She set high goals for herself at the outset of her career.

Is the form WAS WANTED right? Explain please.

Hey, I think it should be "end" because we cannot use "at" with "begining/midddle" and for "entrance" I cannot comment.

So I think it should be "end", making a sense of "At the end".

Jyoti said: (Feb 12, 2018)  
It should be either "entrance" or "end", if we consider "At" and since ouset means somthing at begining. So it should be "entrance'.
