Aversion mean dislike.

Vinod said: (Aug 26, 2011)  
Dislike is followed by to.

Rajesh said: (Sep 19, 2011)  
I Think to+ taking would not be the right answer. Please try yourself.

Megha said: (Sep 19, 2011)  
I think 'for' should have been 1 of the options.

Naveen Goud said: (Nov 6, 2011)  
I agree with Rakesh

Praveena said: (Feb 22, 2012)  
It should have been 'for' and not to.

Zahid said: (Oct 9, 2012)  
There always be the first form of verb after word "to".

So here taking is used thus to can not be the true choice here.

Bibhuti said: (Jun 18, 2013)  
Here in this question to + taking is the right answer because taking is a continuous work done. So it can be treated as a verb.

Amitesh said: (Aug 6, 2013)  
To+taking is not suitable according to me "AT" will be the answer of it.

Anushka said: (Dec 13, 2013)  
To+v1+ing form is not at all used only to+v1 is used.

Mahi said: (Sep 22, 2014)  
To+taking is not suitable according to me "AT".

Sreya said: (Jul 1, 2015)  
I think at should be the correct answer.

Sucheta said: (Jul 20, 2015)  
To+taking? How is it possible? Please tell the correct option.

Bagish Sood said: (Oct 2, 2015)  
To is always followed by an infinitive.

Amit said: (Jan 17, 2016)  
To cannot be the answer because to always follow a root word. To +ing can not be possible. Better you try yourself.

Umang said: (Jul 14, 2016)  
Amit is correct.

"to" is always followed by the first form of the verb.

Don't know about the others but "to" is definitely not an option.

Ram Tulasi said: (Jul 25, 2016)  
Averse means unwilling or disinclined or loath and is always followed by the preposition 'to'.

Sagar Konda said: (Dec 9, 2016)  
I think 'to' is not the best answer for the sentence. If so, the sentence should continue as 'to take' but not 'to taking'.

Anshuman said: (Apr 23, 2017)  
To is correct! I agree.

Rosy said: (Jan 22, 2018)  
I think to is not right answer because to+taking.

Mahnoor said: (Mar 6, 2020)  
We can't use "ing" form of the verb with "to" always 1st form of a verb is used with "to" to make the infinitive like "to teach" not "to teaching".

Ricky Mathews said: (Sep 25, 2020)  
If the right answer is 'to' then 'taking' should be changed to 'take'.
