    Suppose this is a book, and you can view two pages here. I want to bent down the red parts. How should I say?

    ____ _____
    |xooo|oooo|
    |oooo|oooo|
    |oooo|oooo|
    |xooo|oooo|
    Say, "Do this." Hehe, just kidding. Try,

    Fold the top left corner downwards to the bottom left corner.

    Question
    Why present tense? Why not past tense? Mike has known something happened before Ron was going to tell him.
    At this moment in time, I already know (what happened). :D

    How do you plan to do for this summer?


    [Notice] If I change the question word 'How' to 'What', the answers would be slighly different. Right?

    Q: How do you plan to spend/on spending your summer? :D
    A: I plan to spend it/on spending it at the beach/camping in the mountains. :D

    Cas sensei, thanks for the help. Some doubts still remain in my mind. What if I change my question to "What do you plan to for this summer?"
    Answer: I plan to spend my lovely summer at the beach.

    So what's the difference between how and what in this case? You have to tell me or I'll kill myself. :)
