I always have difficulty differenciating using "ing" from "nouns" as follows.
Vaccines have accomplished near miracles in the fight against infectious disease.
1. In the abovementioned sentence, can I use "near miracles in fighting" in stead of using " in the fight"?
2. If so, waht is the difference between two expression?
3. If not, how about using "acmoplished in fighting infectious disease." in stead of original expression.
If you use 1, you have to say 'Vaccines have accomplished near miracles in fighting infectious diseases.
2. There's no difference.
3. No. You cannot omit 'near miracles' after accomplished.
