Is general how does one decide whether to use a verb in its infinitive form or as a gerund?
"It was said in the preliminary section on the Participle and Gerund that writingâ€”the verbal noun or gerundâ€”and to writeâ€”the infinitiveâ€”are in some sense synonyms; but phrases were given showing that it is by no means always indifferent which of the two is used. It is a matter of idiom rather than of grammar"
but in general:
Infinitive to denote potential, gerund to denote actuality or fact Infinitive for future ideas and plans; gerund for acts done or ended Infinitive for single or repeated action, gerund for ongoing action Infinitive for request, instruction, or causation; gerund for attitude and unplanned action
A rather simple explanation for this could be...
Just read the question carefully.. what is which can be enacted? I think only proposal can be enacted... not 'taxing ' or 'to tax ' can be enacted.
That leaves only A and B.
Obviously B is not correct.. correct idiom in this context both to ears and otherwise is "proposal to tax"
That leaves A. bingo!
Many of the questions sometimes just check common sense.. it's not really important to think about obscure grammar rules
