    Re: checking a modal

    Welcome, tanjit.

    What do you mean by "modal"? The reason I ask, there are no modal verbs in these sentences:
    To clean up the coastlines.

    To collect useful information about these coastlines.
    The verbs to clean and to collect are infinitive in form.

    Does that help? If not, please let us know.
