Dr. King's "Letter from a Birmingham Jail" is a condemning of racial injustice and a calling
for nonviolent resistance to that injustice.

MG answer : [Dr. King’s “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” is CONDEMNATION of racial injustice and a
CALL for nonviolent resistance to that injustice]

My Doubt : Can the following answer also be correct ?

Dr. King’s “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” CONDEMNS racial injustice and
CALLS for nonviolent resistance to that injustice.

Both the original answer and your answer are correct.

The reason the original problem didn't include your answer, is because it looks like this:

The instructions say that the error is within the underlined section. But in your sentence, you also removed the word 'is', which isn't underlined! Hopefully that explains the mystery. Your sentence is right, but it isn't technically following the instructions.
