While preparing for CAE, I've stumbled upon this Transformation task. I had to rewrite the second sentence so that it has the same meaning as the first one, keeping the word in caps unchanged and using it.
57 These areas of the brain are used in recognising facial expressions. (ALLOW)
These areas of the brain ______ facial expressions.
My answer was "These areas of the brain allow for recognition of facial expressions.", but my teacher told me that it's incorrect. An example of this construction can be found in the Cambridge Dictionary:
Does your insurance allow for home nursing care?
While I believe that my teacher is not incompetent and that my answer was likely actually wrong, my teacher couldn't explain the problem. So, here I am, asking:
Was using the "allow for" construction incorrect here? If so, why? What should the correct answer be?
