This is from a CPE exam. In this exercise you have to fill the gap in the second sentence so that it is similar in meaning to the lead-in sentence. The key word must be used.
How likely is it that Tom will get a place in the team?
key word: chances
What .......................... getting a place in the team?
Answer A: are Tom’s chances of (this is the correct answer according to the book)
Answer B: are the chances of Tom
Now the book gives answer A as the only possible correct answer. My question is why would it be wrong to choose answer B.
Thank you in advance.
