To identify / Identifying
Would you please help me with these two sentences?
厖厖厖卼he main idea of each paragraph will help you understand the text.
a.- To identify b.- Identify c.- Identifying
厖厖厖厖is the key to success
a.- To study b.- Studying
I would choose "a" in sentence one and option "b" in sentence two. Infinitive with TO for specific actions and -ing for general statements. What do you think?
Thank you for your help.
Re: To identify / Identifying
I'd use the gerund in both sentences. The infinitive is rarely used as a subject these days in normal speech and writing.
