An old post.. still remains un-answered... Does any one know why A is prefereable.....
6. The new contract forbids a strike by the transportation union.
(A) forbids a strike by the transportation union
(B) forbids the transportation union from striking
(C) forbids that there be a strike by the transportation union
(D) will forbid the transportation union from striking
(E) will forbid that the transportation union strikes
But anser is A please explain ..
A is the only one which makes sense. Not only that, B and D use "striking" which doesnt suggest that the unions may protest. The meaning of the sentence is lost when we use "striking". (striking -> some kind of attack)
Moreover, "will forbid" in D and E.. shows that the contract hasnt been made or that it doesnt contain a clause tht would prohibit the transport unions from going to strike.
C is awkward construction.
I hope that helps.
