    1. I was determined to expose what he did to me.

    2. I determined to expose what he did to me.

    Which is the correct sentence?

    Thank you very much.

    Re: correct sentence

    They are both correct, but they have slightly different meanings.

    Sentence 1 means that you really, really wanted to expose what he did do you, even if it became difficult for you.

    Sentence 2 simply means you decided to expose what he did.
