Padma said: (Nov 29, 2010)  
The warden forbade the student for leaving the hostel.

Mat said: (Feb 10, 2011)  
Forbade is the past tense form of forbid.

Vasu said: (Sep 17, 2011)  
Forbade is past tense and forbidden is past participle form or forbid. So option d is right since the sentence is in past tense form.

Sahithya said: (Jan 8, 2012)  
Forbid or forbade will follow "FROM" so the answer is option D.

You are all wrong. Here are the two possible correct forms of the sentences: The warden stopped the student from leaving the hostel or The warden forbade the student to leave the hostel.

Sriram said: (Aug 30, 2012)  
If we use forbade to, it must be followed by leave the hostel. Since, "leaving the hostel" is the part of the sentence,"forbade from" is the correct usage as opposed to "forbade to".

Praveen said: (Sep 15, 2013)  

Your sentence itself is wrong. It should be "you all are wrong".

Gopi said: (Sep 21, 2013)  
@Thomas and @Sriram.

Both of you are wrong. It should be "you are all doing wrong".

Subhasish said: (Jun 17, 2014)  
What's wrong in "forbade the STUDENTS" ? I think it should be STUDENTS instead of STUDENT.

Sumanth said: (Jul 21, 2014)  
Forbade: to command (a person) not to do something.

For refers it had already happened.

From refers, it will going to happen.

Khushi said: (Jan 15, 2015)  
I think its 'to leave the hostel'.

Cool said: (Sep 1, 2015)  
Given data & answer correct.

Shamma said: (Dec 15, 2015)  

I too have the same doubt. Why not students?

Ubaidulla said: (Jun 21, 2016)  
There will be the use of to after forbade because forbade always carries to not from.

Sunil said: (Jul 29, 2016)  
I think it's 'to leave the hostel'.

Sunil said: (Jul 29, 2016)  
Verbs refuse and forbid are followed by infinitive form of verb and deny is followed by from and a gerund.

Himalay said: (Sep 30, 2016)  
Forbid + object + infinitive with 'to' is used.

Deepa said: (Dec 19, 2016)  
The correct sentence is;

The Warden forbade the students to leave the hostel.

J-K said: (Jul 25, 2017)  
It is Leaving from the hostel.

Inder said: (Oct 3, 2017)  
I think it should be like: The warden forbade the students from leaving the hostel.

Nazmul Sagor, Bd said: (Apr 11, 2018)  
Forbid to and Forbid from, they mean the same thing. But forbid someone to sounds much better. And also the infinite has a more 'imperative ' meaning than 'from+gerund'.

Ambika said: (Sep 17, 2018)  
I agree @Inder. It should be students in the place of student.

Pranav said: (Apr 1, 2020)  
And the correct sentence is The warden forbade the students from leaving the hostel.

Ayontika said: (Apr 25, 2020)  
I think it should be " forbade to leave".
