    thx

    Thank you very much!You are right!but I still have problem grammatically understanding this sentence. Because "leap" is an intransitive verb that must be followed by an adverb or preposition and in this sentence it is not followed by an adverb or preposition and instead, it is followed by "remarkable heights". Is it correct?

    I think the correct answer is "leapt" because the past form Leaped is n longer used in English also leapt is especially British English
