There is a question on my English test paper:
What the poor man did actually inspired a feeling of sympathy __ all of us.
The answer is (A). However, I don't know why and what difference between the both choices in this sentence.
Therefore, I turned to my teacher for explanation,but my teacher just said that "from" should be connected with a more "moving" verb like "go".
From my perspective,it didn't ring true at all because the word "from" didn't modify the verb "inspired" but the noun "a feeling of sympathy".
So, could you tell me why the answer should be (A) instead of (B)?
