Hi,

The mistake here is called " split infinitive" though GMAT rarely tests on this topic and but still .. you have brought up this question so let me discuss:

Statement1: To run Quickly----> to+verb+adverb
Statement2: To quickly run----> to+adverb+verb

Statement2 is always WRONG

Now check the ori sentence: "to sharply rise"

I hope now you c the difference.
Do you c the difference...?

saurabhmalpani thanks
i've suspected that the location of the adverb in the sentence was the reason but i didn't know the rule.
