    i don't know the explanation but i feel it that way is right.

     

    borrowing, but we'll need someone with a better understanding of grammar to explain why. It's strange because, if the verb was DECIDED or CHOSE, we would say, "He decided to borrow money from his parents. He chose to borrow money from his parents." But in this case, with RESORTED, we say "He resorted to borrowing money from his parents." Let's wait for a grammar master's response
