Question 11: Actual evidence of misconduct may not be the most important criteria to determine whether a President gets impeached.
Criterion is singular and criteria, plural. The sentence given refers to only one criterion—evidence of misconduct. So, the options that use ‘criteria’ are wrong.
The usages ‘criterion for determining’ and ‘criterion in determining’ are both correct in the given context. ‘To determine if a president gets impeached’ mixes up tenses, and ‘to determining the impeachment of a President’ is incorrect usage.
The question is " Choose the grammatically correct option "
Choice B is the correct answer.
