'Take up with' = begin a relationship with. Not appropriate here.

I think that you have a restrictive point about -take up with, it means also preoccupy. Correct me if Iím wrong

Ah, yes, that's right. But it still would not fit the sense of the test sentence.

correct sentence:
By going ahead with the proposal without reference to other members of the board, the chairman got into serious trouble.

Correct entry: going ahead
The error was: (a) taking ahead

You have found the error but your entry is incorrect.
your sentence:
By going ahaed with the proposal without reference to other members of the board, the chairman got into serious trouble.

as i see my answer "going ahaed" was right - so, why is my entry incorrect ?

Very simple, just compare (letter by letter):

Your answer: going ahaed
The correct answer: going ahead

See the difference? Simple as that!
