I have something that sets us thinking.
1. These are the fishes to sell.
2. He is the man to be admired.
As I know, the to-infinitives above are adjectives because they modifies the nouns before them.
I also know they can be rephrased as the following.
3. These are the fishes which we sell.
4. He is the man whom we admire.
Do you notice that the fishes and the man above are the objects of the relative clauses ?
If the first sentence is correct, by analogy, the second sentence can be rephrased into the following.
He is the man to admire.
So, is the above sentence correct ?
To me, both of them sound correct.
Your guidance is highly appreciated.
