I saw this sentence in my grammar book:
"There are advantages to stopping smoking."
I am wondering why the sentence is not like:
"There are advantages to stop smoking."
Why do we use "to stopping smoking" instead of "to stop smoking"
There are cases where we use 'to'+-ing, like 'look forward to seeing'. The reason is that 'to'is a preposition and not part ofan infinitive- 'to' goes with 'advantages'.
Other common ones include 'be acustomed to' 'be\get used to' 'object to' and any phrasal verb with two prepositions with 'to' at the end.;-)
Thank you TDOL. That helped me.
