    Form of "be"

    Hi,
    What is the difference between "be" and "to be" ?
    Please, explain with an example.

    Is "to be" taken into account in a sentence when "be" is used as primary verb ?
    Or
    Is "to be" an infinitive form of verb "be" ?

    Re: Form of "be"

    That's far too complicated a question to answer without examples. Please give us some sentences in which you don't know/understand whether "be" or "to be" is required and we'll see what's confusing you.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    You got a very similar response when you asked the question here about twenty minutes after emsr2d2's response appeared here, Sujan. It might have been a better idea for you to post a few sentences here, as ems suggested, rather than posting the same question elsewhere.
