Student or Learner
Please explain the mistake made by me in the following sentence :-
We advised him running the marathon.
Thanks in advance.
I am not a teacher.
If you strongly suggested that he should run the marathon it would be, 'We advised him to run the marathon'.
If you were giving him advice on something while you were running the marathon, then 'We advised him running the marathon' would be OK. I should add that that is both facetious and an extremely unlikely scenario, before anyone else points that out.
