    Re: have/had sb do/done/to do sth

    Actually, no, your question is not very clear.

    Can you write sentences in which you think you would use these and we can tell you which ones are actually incorrect or which one don't sound very natural?

    I can't tell with all your / marks what you want to include in a sentence and what the options are.

    1. have/had somebody do sth [not "to do sth"]

    2. make/made sb do sth [not "to do sth"]

    3. get/got sb to do sth [with 'get' use "to do sth"]

    Now see if you can do your examples by yourself, Fuadha.
