Hi guys:

When do you "forbid X to do Y" and "forbid X from doing Y."

From the Freen Online Dictionary - re: forbid... USAGE: It was formerly considered incorrect to talk of forbidding someone from doing something, but in modern usage either from or to can be used: he was forbidden from entering/to enter the building.

That said, this being GMAT SC, I would go with "forbid TO."

Note though that it is "prohibit FROM."

MGMAT SC has a good list of idioms with examples. They grouped in 3 types. Right, Wrong, Suspect (could be right if everything else has other grammatical errors).

It is an idiom. I had this in one my GMATPrep tests, and they classified it as an idiom.
