    Belonging to

    Hi, can anyone tell me if "belonging to" in the following sentence is a verb in the gerund because the "belonging" is continuous? Or am I wrong?

    Going far away is linked to belonging to an economical class.

    This is is a correction that my teacher made and I wrote the following:-

    Going far away is linked to belong to an economical class.

    I'm talking about travel in the sentence.

    Thank you!

    Neither sentence makes complete sense. The first one makes more sense than the second.
