    Please log in whenever (ask) ______ to do.

    I was asked to complete this sentence:

    Please log in whenever (ask) ____ to do.


    I wonder if "asked" is appropriate. I hope to hear from you soon.

    If you don't mind, please explain your choice, too.

    Thank you very much.

    I agree with you.

    Please log in whenever (you are) asked to do (so).

    Re: Please log in whenever (ask) ______ to do.

    Is it OK if I fill the blank with "being asked"?

    At first I thought just like SirGod, but now I think that it must be passive.

    If both of them are correct, are there any differences?

    I hope to hear from you soon. Thanks

    Ending the sentence with "to do" is incorrect.

    Please log in whenever asked to do so.
    Please log in whenever asked to.
    Please log in whenever asked.
