Help me with the two questions . Thanks beforehand.
1. It is no fun at all to play tricks on others.
It is no fun at all playing tricks on others.
Which of the above is correct?
2. I told Albert to call Mary.
Albert did it.
Hint: Use "remember" to combine the two sentences above.
Albert remembered to call Mary.
Albert remembered calling Mary.
As for 1, I think the former is much more normal and used more often.
The latter sounds strange to me(and in my memory no one uses the form "Ving"), but I saw a grammar book says both are ok.
As for 2, I think in this case, the latter is the right one;however, the grammar book gives the answer of the former.
I'm so confused.
