    make possible sth or make it possible sth?

    It is the lack of gravity on the moon that makes _____ leaps of 30 feet or more.
    A. possible B. to be possible C. it possible D. it to be possible

    I would choose C but some of my friends chose A. Actually I don't know which is correct. It would be easier if it were "make leaps possible"
    Please help me to find the answer.

    Both answers are possible (sort of). There are a couple of ways to say that. Examples:
    It is the lack of gravity on the moon that makes leaps of 30 feet or more possible.

    It is the lack of gravity on the moon that makes it possible to leap 30 feet or more.
    While you can put "possible" in the blank, the examples I gave are more likely. (The moon does have gravity. It is just much weaker than that of Earth.)
