I can dance or play a guitar but/except (to) study
I had no choice but (to) accept the challenge.
What can we do but (to) sit and wait?
I just would like to ask if I must put 'to' after 'but or except' in these sentences I have written. Are they necessary?
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
Sorry for the first sentence I have constituted. What I try to intend is:
I just want to dance or sleep but/except (to) study.
Is that OK?
You want to dance and sleep. You don't want to study. Is that what you're trying to say?

Yes, but, I can't understand why this sentence 'I just want to dance and sleep but/except (to) study' doesn't make sense.

Or "I want to dance and sleep but not to study".
