There is a multiple choice question i can't understand.
The gentle lady would do anything for the boy ___ tell him the truth about his father.
A.except B.except for C.except to D.except from
At first,i chose C because i think it should be"to do sth"
But the reference answer is B
is it cerrect? isn't it "except for doing sth or except for+noun "?
