I was given a question and I had to find error in it

The priest class took upon itself the monopoly (1)/ of scriptural knowledge and interpretation (2)/ of the same to its own advantage. (3)/ No error (4)

Answer was part 1

I am not able to figure out the correct answer.

IS the error lies in the usage of take upon itself, take upon itself is usually used as **take upon itself to do something and hence in the sentence above it is used wrong.

Somebody help me understand this

1

In the given sentence:

The priest class took upon itself the monopoly of scriptural knowledge and interpretation of the same to its own advantage.

I do not see a grammatical error. As a matter od style I might have written "claimed" or "held" rather than "took upon itself". I might have written "scriptural knowledge and interpretation" or "scriptural knowledge and its interpretation" instead of "scriptural knowledge and interpretation of the same". But neither of thsoe would be correcting an error.
