B

according to MGMAT SC idiom list, "forbid to" is the correct idiom

edit:
actually, "forbidden from" is also correct, according to here http://www.flashcardexchange.com/flashc ... 769?page=2

but the sentence "forbidden from prescribing their patient drugs" is awkward
it sounds better if it was "forbidden from prescribing drugs to their patient"

B for me too...

@gmat blows
B correctly states as "prescribing privileges"

I think, "Began to grant" and "began granting" both are correct. However the rest of the statement - "privileges of prescribing to licensed psychologists" is misleading. It may be read as "privileges of prescribing to licensed pscyhologists".

Thus, stating it as "prescribing privileges" avoids this confusion.

B looks good for me

"forbidden to prescribe drugs for their patients" sounds better

"forbidden from prescribing their patients drugs" vs --- "forbidden from prescribing drugs for their patients"
second one sounds better to me. Can some one throw lights on this

verb form should be as close as possible and placement of unnecessary words should be avoided in verbs. "Historically" is wrongly placed in A, B, and C, where it is separating "have" from "been".

D. historically psychologists have been forbidden from prescribing their patients drugs, but in 2002 New Mexico began to grant the privilege of prescribing
Seems correct to me.

E. historically psychologists have been forbidden from prescribing drugs for their patients, but in 2002 in New Mexico, they began granting prescribing privileges.
Seems awkward because "granting prescribing" does not go well. You can say either "to grant the privilege of prescribing" or "granting privileges to prescribe".

I will go with D.

D and E are out - Modifier issues

B is the only answer left. Forbid to is the right idiom

There seems to be a great deal of misunderstanding on GMATClub regarding "forbid to" or "forbid from". Here is my opinion on the subject:

Forbid to
I have seen more people, on various forums, state that this is the correct idiom. It is also a very active voice. "I forbid you to see him again!" MGMAT SC says it's the correct idiom.

Forbid from
To many non-native English speakers, this sounds incorrect. I was born in the U.S., and it sounds fine to me, but then, many in different parts of the U.S. say odd things (pop, soda, or Coke?[even though you're drinking Pepsi!])

My Conclusion:
It seems that on the GMAT, the correct answer, when given "forbid from" or "forbid to" is going to be "forbid to".

If there is not an answer that contains a form of "forbid to". Find one that doesn't use "forbid from", but doesn't break any other rules.

The Lesser of Two Evils is Often the Best Choice on the GMAT!

Hi guys!

I am confused with B, "but in 2002 New Mexico began granting prescribing privileges" How New mexico began granting? is it an authority or a person? no! so it is a bit nonscence to me.

As far as I know

Forbid X TO do Y is correct usage on GMAT

Prohibit X doing from Y is correct on GMAT

Forbid takes "to" --> infinitive form of verb

prohibit takes "ing" -->

Above discussion focuses on use of idiom : Forbid to Vs Forbid from on GMAT.

Can someone explain if the high-light portion below in choice A is it correct to use?

psychologists have historically been forbidden from prescribing their patient drugs, but in 2002 New Mexico began to grant the privilege of prescribing (to licensed, doctoral level psychologists ...)

Also are there any other decision points for choosing option B over option A apart from the idiomatic usage. (forbid to)
