Hello. I have one question to ask you. During my English class yesterday, we came across the rubric of an essay exercise that had to be done as homework. In the end of the rubric it said ... Then write your letter to the agency, saying why you are dissatisfied and telling them what actionyou want taken. Our teacher told us to correct the typo "want taken" and write "want to be taken" instead. She said it was a typo. But I have doubts, I think that there was nothing wrong with the sentence "want taken" cause I swear I've heard people using the word "want" without putting "to" next to it.
I'd appreciate it if I could get an answer to this one. Is the expression ... you want taken correct or false? Should it be ... you want to be taken the correct one? Or are they both correct?
