    Default Patterns with get

    If I had to use GOT in the sentence:

    "Bradley was successful in making the I.T. company run smoothly at last".

    Which of the followings will be correct?

    "Bradley GOT running the I.T. company smoothly at last"
    "Bradley GOT run the I.T. company smoothly at last"
    "The I.T. Company got run smoothly by Bradley at last"

    Thanks,

    Miki.

    Thanks.

    I see that in my first sentence I had put the "I. T. Company" in the wrong position.

    Thanks again.
