    Question transformation

    Please explain the following pattern in transformation of sentences.
    Given : She swept the floor. No one asked her to.
    Answer: She swept the floor without being asked.
    I would like to know whether the above answer is correct, and if correct, why we need to omit "to".

    Re: transformation

    We do not need to omit it: it is simply optional.
