Interested in Language
I was told that the "want" has two structures :
1) want + something
2) want + someone + to do something
I want to know that the under which category metioned above the following sentence will fall.
"I want the real culprit to be arrested"
PLease explain with reason also.
Active: I want the police to arrest the real culprit.
=> 2) want + someone + to do something
Passive: I want the real culprit to be arrested (by the police).
Hope that helps.
