Take, for example, this sentence:
Away from Vatican City, Tome was quiet as authorities ordered all public offices and schools to close (close), and banned (ban) cars from the roads. Millions of Catholics who ______________ (not get) to Italy, bid (bid) him farewell in myriad services round the globe.
What's the grammatically correct form of the concept "to not get" in this context, to fill in the blank and complete the sentence?
The word must be derived from "get", or the phrase include "get", in order to be consistent with the pattern that that the words/phrases preceding bracketed words are derivations of those bracketed words.
