    mam ….prefer + to …should be right i q4 ???

    1. deepali

      i prefer coffee to tea ,,,i think uska usage esa hota,,,m not sure ,,,

    2. Srishti

      Prefer is a verb that can take both gerund nad infinitive
      So, it should be “prefer to work” or “prefer working” both would be correct.

      Hope it helps 🙂

    1. deepali

      mujhe to 6th m bhi impact on micro sochri thi 🙁

      1. Srishti

        Preposition “at” specifies a point.
        For more please refer to “Wren and Martin” high school grammar.

    2. Srishti

      “to+ing” strructure is used only nd only when it serves the purpose of Noun! Apply it to the sentence.

  3. Been-There

    in the first sentence “it is” is not in an interrogative sentence, so why should be replaced by “is it” ? i think the sentence is correct.

  4. MAYANK BHARADWAJ100%

    thks mam
