    Please help me with this sentences

    1."Sometimes information needs to be dynamic."

    Could anyone tell me what is the object of verb "needs" in this sentence and what is the role(parts of speech) of "to be" in the sentence?

    2. "I want to be good"

    What is the object of the verb in this sentence and what is the role(parts of speech) of "to be" in the sentence?

    Hello sandyy

    The infinitives function as the object of a verb, which makes them nominal. The internal structure is to be + <adjective>.
