Student or Learner
Hello! , nice forum btw
ok, so can you guys plz help me on these sentenses below?
how many fasts did you keep?
how many days did you fasts?
which one of the above is correct?
if none of them then, help me to make it
also english is not my first language if there are any mistakes do tell me.
Thanks in advance.
so, "How many days did you fast?" is the correct one right?
what is the bare infinitive form?
It means that: did , indicates the time of the verb " to fast"...did you fast? Therefore "fast " is bare, by itself, alone, without "to". Bare. Get it?
but why fast? not fasts?
When a verb form appears after "do/did", so do you mean after verb form like do/did comes
we should use "verb to be" form ??? ok but is "to be " form used singuler here? why not plural?

Please start using capital letters in your post.
Proper English requires capital letters.
The infinitive is the "to VERB" form. The bare infinitive is the "VERB" form. Don't think of it is as plural or singular. It's not inflected.
As the second post explained after a form of "to do" (like "did") you use the VERB form - no s on the end.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
I am still confused
