    Default have no choice...

    Hi,

    Thank for the answer!

    I'd like to know the reason why "to infinitive"is followed by "but" as "I have no choice but to go back."
    I learned that "~ing" form is followed by a preposition.


    Best regards.

    Best regards.
    Isn't it a conjunction in that context?

    I have no choice. I have to go back.
    I have no choice but to go back.
