This is more about idiom than about anything else, I suppose. ‘Forbid’ is always followed by the infinitive ‘to’; as per that tenet, B is the right answer.


a) a teacher from scolding a student or to call --- forbid from is wrong

b) a teacher to scold a student or call – forbid to is correct.

c) that teachers scold a student or call ----Forbidding is not a mandatory case; it is more a mild form of prohibiting or ban n. So no case for subjunctive here.

d) the scolding by a teacher of a student or calling of – the infinitive is missing

e) scolding by teachers of a student or calling of – the infinitive is missing

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



You forbid something or someone to do something. ‘Forbid from’ and ‘forbid that’ are idiomatically incorrect. Choices D and E use the passive voice and are wordy. Choice B is the correct answer.

B. a teacher to scold a student or call
Can some one help me in explaining the parallelism between TO SCOLD and CALL. Generally we add TO to maintain parallelism.
Rest of the sentence is fine.

A. a teacher from scolding a student or to call - From is incorrect

B. a teacher to scold a student or call - Parallel, conveys the right meaning

C. that teachers scold a student or call Subjunctive form is not needed

D. the scolding by a teacher of a student or calling of Not idiomatic, wordy

E. scolding by teachers of a student or calling of Not idiomatic, wordy

If you know the idiom "Forbid + infinitive", then it's pretty straightforward.

I think the parallelism, in this sentence, has this form:
a teacher to scold a student or call...

Correct me if I'm wrong.
