    Question He objects to our plan being cancelled.

    What is different between 2 sentences?
    1. He objects to our plan being cancelled.
    2. He objects to our plan cancelled.
    I know that first one is correct, but I don't know why.


    Also, how is the meaning different between the sentences below?
    1. I am not happy, but I will.
    2. I am not happy, but I will be.

    Thank you in advance.

    The first and fourth sentences are correct. The second and third are not.

    Henry, please note that I have changed your thread title. 'Grammar question' was too vague.

    Extract from the Posting Guidelines:
