    They are both correct. One is looking for parallelism in comparisons. The items on both sides of "rather than" must be in the same form.

    1. watching tv : swimming (both gerunds)
    2. to watch TV : (to) swim (both infinitives)

    I agree with the listed answers.

    One could use "make something done" in terms of cooking meat (done meaning well done"), but not in the context above.
