Reply to "get it complete / completing / completed"

Which is correct? What rules that we follow? Thanks.

 

Since the tasks is hard, Peter has to burn the midnight oil to get it complete / completing / completed on time. 

Hi, bear_bear: In the "since"-clause, you need "are" (plural), not "is" (singular), because the subject of the "since"-clause ("tasks") is plural. The word you need after "get it" is the past participle, "completed." Compare:

  • Peter will get it done.

(NOT: Peter will get it do; Peter will get it did; Peter will get it doing.)
