    ok, am aware that 'ability to' is correct. but is 'ability for' strictly wrong and can an answer on the test be eliminated simply if there is a mistake only in the idiom?

    I believe so but expert can give broader knowledge.
    Able to; ability to: - Tom is able to play the guitar with his toes.

    I didn't see "FOR".
