Q: Some say Lili just joined the debate team out of a love with the sound of her own voice.

I think the best answer is Option E.

The above construct in the question is wrong at 2 places - "Lilly just joined.." & "Out of a love with..."
"Lily just joined" is wrong simply because it gives the wrong meaning - "just joined" implies she joined very recently, but here we are trying to give a reason for why she joined (not when she joined) so the correct format is "only joined" (otherwise she would not have joined)

The second part is wrong because the correct structure is "Love for .." is the way to use it. "Love for my country" & not "Love with my country"

Hope it helps!

B. Lili was in love witht he sound of her voice, some say, and just joined the debate team.
C. Some people say Lili just joined the debate team in love of her own voice.
D. Some people say Lili just joined the debate team out of love with her voice.
E. Some say Lili only joined the debate team out of a love for the sound of her own voice.

We can rewrite the sentence as "Some say Lili just joined the debate team because a love with the sound of her own voice". We say "a love for something", not "a love with something" so A, D are incorrect.

Lili joined the team for a reason: "because a love with the sound of her own voice", B and C are incorrect because "just joined" express that Lili joined the team recently.

So E is the correct answer choice.

The correct answer is "E". In A, C and D, "Just" incorrectly modifies "joined" instead of modifying "out of her love". In "A" "love with" is incorrect because we fall in love with someone/thing but do things for our love of something.

Hello All,

I am still confused by the explanation that the correct idiomatic usage is " Love For" and not "Love with".
Please pardon my ignorance and let me know if it is incorrect to say that " I am in Love with her", as I have used "Love with" here.

Can someone please explain the difference. Many Thanks.

Love with and Love for are both idiomatic.
You are in Love with somebody.
You do things out/because of Love {for somebody}. Here try replacing {for somebody} with {with somebody} , It doesn't sound right.

So, In the above question , "Love for" is appropriate.
