    I would like to _ and to _/I would like to _ and _

    I get stuck at whether we should put "to" again after "and" , and want someone to shed some lights on it. Below is my example for a better illustration:

    I would like to know when we could apply for the exclusion of surplus
    courses and to confirm whether the maximum credits that can be excluded is
    12.

    Re: I would like to _ and to _/I would like to _ and _

    Yes, there should be a "to" there. You would like two things:

    1. to know when... courses
    2. to confirm ...

    For parallelism, you should always use the same parts of speech when using a conjunction. "To know" matches with "to confirm."

    How about this sentence: Please come to enjoy the fun and passion of the game, can "the" be omitted in this case?

    There are two "the's" in the sentence. Both are necessary.
