My question for today is which of the two following expressions in quotation marks is correct:
At the beginning of a sentence:
- "What to do during panic attacks?" OR "What do during panic attacks?"
Neither of these are correct. They are not complete sentences.
If the first one is correct, why can I remember reading the following:
- "Why panic during panic attacks?", isn't it "Why to panic"
This is correct. "to panic" is an infinitive so "Why to panic" is not a sentence.
and which is the negative?
- "Why not panic...?" OR "Why not to panic...?" as an instruction
I don't know what the "..." means here as this usually indicates an obvious missing part of a sentence, but it isn't obvious to me
"Why not panic?" is correct. (same reason as above.)
In the middle of a sentence:
- "I do not know how to use this machine." OR "I do not know how use/using it."
This is the correct sentence.
Thanks for explaining all of these stated above.
