    to stop or tobe stopped

    Hi,

    I want to know the answers and the reasons...

    1. As soon as I tap on the window, I want the car (to stop/ to be stopped) immediately.

    2. The greater part of our knowledges (have/has) been communicated to us.

    3. Which part is ingrammatical?
    We should remind that these many sounds can be made ~~.

    Best wishes...

    Either is okay depending on the speaker focus. It seems like the 'stopping of the car is the important issue, so there's no mention of any individual.

    2. The greater part of our knowledge[s] (have/has) been communicated to us.

    'knowledge' is uncountable.

    3. Which part is [in] ungrammatical?
    We should remind [somebody] that these many sounds can be made ~~.

    Best wishes...
