    defaulting or paying off

    In short, for many students, the problem of being crushed beneath unaffordable payments - and therefore either defaulting or paying off their debt well into old age - has already been solved, even though tens of millions of families and political class haven't caught up with that fact.



    Why these words that I highlight using -ing form.

    Re: defaulting or paying off

    I have changed your thread title, HFB.

    Extract from the Posting Guidelines:

    'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'

    Your question should read

    'Why are the highlighted words in the '-ing' form?

    That text is not well written. Where did you find it?
