    Cool asking /to ask

    Hello,

    Is this sentence grammatically correct, please?

    "Another way to interrupt people during a meeting is asking for clarification." (Would it be better to use "to ask" instead of "asking"? )

    Cheers
    Will

    Re: asking /to ask

    I believe that to ask or asking is right because they are complements after Be. However, 'To ask' will express a stronger meaning, you have to do to get it.
