Gerunds and Infinitives Exercise 1
Fill in each blank with the idiomatically correct choice according to American English: an infinitive, a gerund, or the preposition “to” + a gerund. For questions with more than one correct answer, the answer choice boxes are square instead of round.
Gerunds are present participles (verbs with an “-ing” suffix) acting as nouns.
Infinitives are formed by adding “to” before the base form of a verb.
When “to” is followed by a gerund, it is a preposition and does not form an infinitive.
