    “I was confused to have answered this quiz” sounds strange to me. What did actually confuse you? Was it the fact that you had answered the quiz before? NO. What actually confused you was the quiz itself, not the fact of taking it. Your confusion did NOT precede (= happen before) taking the quiz. Thus, your sentence is incorrect and confusing, but interesting! :).

    You could say:
    “The quiz confused me (a lot). However, I was happy to have taken it.” :)

Hi Alex! Thanks for the lesson. I got 100% but I’m interested in one sentence. We had hoped to be done sooner. The answer is correct. It means that the first action( had hoped) happened ealier than the second action(to be done). Right?

    Hi, Reebeca! I have the same question… Greetings!

    Profile photo of Edinho Edinho

    It felt great ____________________.

    to have done that.
    to have been done that.

    The first option is correct, because it’s a active idea and the verb felt in the past requires the model: past idea + to have plus pp

    7. It wasn’t easy ____________________.

    to have been done that.
    to have done that.
    The second answer is considered right, because it’s also an active idea in the past that requires to have + pp. You should use to have been in case of passive idea.
    I’m not sure about my explanation… See you

Hello Alex,
It was really great lesson and it’s my pleasure to have watched this crucial lesson. Probably you will be happy to realize that I acquired 100! on this video. I would be genuinely on cloud nine if you dispatch me some links about pre followed by gerund and preposition followed by infinitive. I have to mention that I want the most common of them.

I’ve got 100.
The matter is TO UNDERSTAND the verb structure. If you look at the PP tense present in the sentence, you can pay your attention. Take a look the question number 9.
I don’t like…TO BEEN is wrong because TO BEEN belongs to the PP structure. TO BE is correct.
Thanks Alex.

Profile photo of hiepvietnames hiepvietnames

I got wrong in this no.

6. We needed ____________________!
to have been told about that sooner!
to tell about that sooner!

I basically don’t get why the answer should be the passive past of the infinitive.

Like for example, if I say:

I needed you to tell me about that.

Please help. :]

Profile photo of Shiori-Guren Shiori-Guren

    The verb tell is used with “to tell somebody”. In your example you wrote correctly “to tell me”. So for that the answer in 6. cannot be “We needed to tell about that sooner!” because you are not told to whom “we needed to tell”.
    In the correct answer “We needed to have been told about that sooner!” you know who is been told because of the use of the passive instead of infinitive. “We” are the somebody who is been told.

Last 5 years i have stayed in different places

is this a grammatically correct sentence ?

Profile photo of sufibd2010 sufibd2010

I need some clarification! I actually opposed to my collegues views concerning some grammar exercises used in a contest. There was an exercise for students to complete saying” to fill in the blanks with MANY, MUCH or A LOT OF”. so for the sentence: She has got……friends. Some students filled in with a lot of and some with many. According to the test standard scores- the answer: She has got many friends- was considered WRONG and penalized on the grounds that A LOT OF is used only in positive senetnces whereas many and much in negative and iterrogative. Could you please clarify me ?

Hi? Alex! I’ve watched your wonderful lesson trying to understand one nuance about the use of infinitives, but unfortunately I didn’t get the answer. My question is this: while doing a test on the use of infinitives, I wrote, “The suitcase was too heavy to be moved”, but my answer was marked wrong as it was supposed to be “The suitcase was too heavy to move”. I don’t understand why I should use the active form instead of the passive one here. Maybe you could clear things up for me. Thank you.
