Could it be d)?
They opened the shop at 9am.
The shop opened at 9am. (Ergative verb)
I am new here and am going to apply for a CELTA course in Germany.
My mother tongue is Russian, but I studied English for some years in Russia. It seems that my language awareness is not good enough to do the CELTA assignment correctly. I would appreciate any help greatly.
The task is as follows:
Which of the items in each group is different from the others and in what way?
A to need
B to show
C to bring
D to open
At first I thought that (A) is the odd one out because it can be used as a modal verb and in this case the Infinitive after it is used without to. But now I am not sure.
Thank you in advance for your help.
