    click/clicking

    Dear all,

    If I say it can be done by choosing option "A" and clicking option "B".

    Should I use click or clicking for my second verb in the above sentence?

    Thank you.

    If the rest of the sentence is to stay the same then you need to keep the word "clicking", because what it's actually saying is "It can be done by choosing Option A and by clicking Option B".

    I'm fascinated by the idea of a question where you choose Option A but you click Option B. If you've chosen Option A, why don't you click Option A?!

    It could be in two stages- A presents options to tick and B a choose of buttons to click after you've made the selection in A.
