    Default Is "...suggested he knock/knocking" correct ?

    Ladies and Gentlemen !!!!

    I am studying for CAE and in one book I got this in the Answer key. On this site, I have seen someone else saying that the correct would be : "...suggested that he knocked"
    So, is "...suggested he knock/knocking" wrong ?

    Thank you for helping me

    You really should write a sentence. It's often impossible to tell whether a three-word phrases is "wrong" or not without seeing how you want to use it.
    However, I can't think of a use for "suggested he knocking" in any context.
