    Hi,
    I think forbit can take both "from/to" as idiom, but why A) is wrong and C) is correct?

    I think "forbid from" is incorrect. It should always be "forbid to".

    I checked the dictionary but

    forbid can take the following

    forbid + object + from ing
    forbid + object + to do
    forbid that SV

    So, I don't understand why A is wrong...

    Have a look at Idioms in Manhattan SC. It says " forbid X to Y".

    GMAT English differ from the accepted norms of English Smile
