What the reason occured in crushing.

When people have interest, opinion, feeling or belief then we use "in".

Chandra said: (Nov 6, 2015)  
But in this sentence, is "in" really necessary?

Would it be correct if just "crushing" was used?

Just "crushing" option is not given.

Here preposition is used for the subject not for crushing. So we know if people have interest, opinion, feelings or belief then we use 'in''.
