Explanatory Answer

Method of solving this CAT Question from Sentence Correction:

The phrasal verb ‘give in’ means ‘to surrender’. It is normally followed by a prepositional phrase starting with ‘to’ and whatever was fought and not won (e.g. give in to the temptation). Note that ‘in to’ is generally short for ‘in order to.’

‘Into’, on the other hand, is a preposition that expresses movement or entry. ‘Into’ usually answers the question ‘where?’ This word does not make sense in the given context.

To be ‘apt to’ do something is to have the tendency to do it. The adjective ‘apt’ has other meanings such as suitable (e.g. an apt reply), and resourceful (e.g. an apt student). Neither of these apply here. ‘Apt to give in’ is the right usage.

The question is " Choose the grammatically correct option "

Hence, the answer is option B

Choice B is the correct answer.
