    What is the role of 'to' ? Is it proposition ?

    Hello Teachers,

    Do you like to look up into the sky at night? Many people findlooking at the stars and planets to be both relaxing and interesting.
    At night time, we can easily see the moon.

    No, it is not a preposition (note spelling), it is part of the infinitive 'to be". This construction is common after the verb "find": find (something) to be (adjective).
