    Question Help Me Please

    Do the sentences below contain a bare infinitive or no infinitive at at all

    1 I like doing something different every year.
    2 Could you help me load the car please.
    3 I want some exercise next week.
    4 What Mark did was give all his money away.

    I think sentences two and four contain a bare infinitive where-as sentences one and three do not.

    Is this correct, and if not why not

    Re: Help Me Please

    I agree- #1 has a gerund and 3 is the simple present.
