I am sorry if this is off-topic but I have searched for it on google and on Learners Dictionary, but couldn't find a satisfactory answer. So, I'm posting it here.
This is a question (see image) on my test.
I requested the teacher (to go out) early.
to allow me to leave
to let me go.
And answer is the 1st option. Can any one tell me why we reject the 2nd option.
Which one is grammatically correct?
Note: And if you think that request doesn't take to after it, see following examples:
Direct: He said, ‘Let me go.’ Indirect: He requested to let him go.
Direct: The boy said to his father, ‘Let me play now.’ Indirect: The boy requested his father to let him play then (Reference)
