Richard was asked to withdraw from graduate school because …
a. they believed he was not really able to complete research
b. he seemed to be incapable of completing his research
Are "a" and "b" possible?
Thank you, 2006.
Is "to be" redundant in (2)?
They believed he was not really able to complete his/the research.
They believed he was not really able to undertake research.
In the first sentence, 'to complete' implies that he has begun a research study, and so we are referring to a specific piece of 'research'.
