But "instill the notion gradually" is incorrect.

instill means introduce so you would gradually introduce a notion rather introduce a notion gradually.

I agree with what you are saying But C says gradually to instill a notion

The word "to " whacked the whole sentence for me.

What is the source of this Q?
