    Re: Difference

    1. try+ing = doing something to see what will happen.
    ex.
    I tried apologizing but he was still mad at me!

    try+infinitive or try+ing = used when we are making an effort to do something difficult.
    ex.
    I tried to fix my computer myself but ended up taking it to a technician.
    I tried fixing my computer..... ( same idea)

    2.The verb "dislike" should be always followed by the ING form of the verb. ( same as enjoy).
    ex.
    I dislike getting up early!

    3. Same thing. Mike's son is far more common though. The other one you will probably find in some
    ex.
    I dislike getting up early!

    3. Same meaning. "Mike's son" is far more common though. You will probably find "the son of Mike" phrase in genealogy records ( sounds a little odd).
