    Word order

    Hello,
    Which one of these alternative is the correct word order in this sentence and why?


    Lisa thought it was pleasant to .. (1) + finally have read
    .. (2) + have finally read


    Question 2:

    It provides a better care for the homeless and make (+s) ...

    Should I use a s after make? Or should I just have a s after provide?

    I would really appreciate an answer! Thanks! :)

    Both are acceptable.

    Question 2:

    It provides a better care for the homeless and make (+s) ...

    Should I use a s after make? Or should I just have a s after provide? "It provides", "It makes".

    I would really appreciate an answer! Thanks! :)
