Why does elaborate require a preposition

Look at the non underined portion of the below sentence

OA is D

The verb elaborate requires a preposition in order to logically connect to the proposal. The representatives are asked to elaborate on the proposal.

What helps us identify this question as a Split Construction question and identify the mistake is the following Stop Sign:

A split construction: Verb A + and/or + Verb B + object

This answer choice corrects the original mistake by adding the required preposition on after the verb elaborate.
