The expected rise in the price of oil could <be a serious impact to industrialized nations and severely diminish the possibility to have> an economy free of inflation.
(A,B, C) wrong

(D) have a serious impact on industrialized nations and severely impede the possibility to have
(E) have a serious impact on industrialized nations and severely diminish the possibility of having

Is there any idiom using 'possiblity'.

Thanks
Satya

Hello Sathya.

Yes, you have to use 'possibilty OF', and not 'possibility TO'.

A tip from my side - If you forget this usages, remmemeber how it is used in Quants. Probability OF . (I use such things to remmeber these)

Similarly, POSSIBILTY OF.

I hope this helped.
