In some prefer book. There is a question

4. Lan prefers ________ music than to listen to it.

A. playing

B. play

C. to play

D. played

Its answer is C. to play

But in grammar book, it's only prefer + rather than. However there is only "than" in that question.

Is it an shortcut or anything else.

P/S: Sorry for my bad grammar

Actually, both A and C are correct depending on the context. For the sentence, C is correct because it is infinitive after "than".
