  1. From the previous material, the word ‘watch’is the part of to infinitive that should not be added by anything.

    See –> feel, have, hear, have, watch, see

    But why does question number 5, there are only 2 asnwer?

    • I am sorry for the late response GQueen :( The word “watch” can be followed with a bare infinitive or agent + gerund.

  2. i just got 80 score.
    taking into consideration the fact that i still confused about it.
    would you like to give me information about link wich give many exercises about grammar?

  3. masalahnya saya binggung, gimana membedakan soalnya yang mana gerund yang mana infinitive ada ciri khussus ngak biar ngak kejebak pas jawab soalnya gitu heee maklum pemula,,

    • Untuk gerund/infinitive yang berperan sebagai direct object of verb saya tidak tau ciri khususnya, bisanya ngecek list..sorry..semoga kapan2 tau :(
      Paling jika berperan sebagai object of preposition kebanyakannya pake gerund, infinitive mengikuti preposition tertentu saja (c/ except, but) Susilawati..
