This sentence isn't quite right in my grammar. It ought to be "Those with mild symptoms only require monitoring."

I would only put an infinitive after require if there's also an object.

*Bringing up children often requires to put their needs first.

The word you is missing there.

The object can be missing if the sentence is passive, as often occurs:

You are required to do your homework.

is ok.

But your sentence is not passive.

However, I see examples on the internet of require+infinite:

one does not require to be a specialist β€” Elizabeth Bowen

In conclusion...

Dear Ben

Thanks for your quick reply.πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™ But I only want to know "to+be" situations sentences.

I like to run (I know this)

They want to go (I know this)

But when it comes to "to be" alone in sentences ( not in passive forms) I am puzzled to understand this.

So please explain that in what situations "to be" used apart from passive voices. Please understand to the core of my problem. Please explain this in detail. Only "to be" infinitive. πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™ Please explain this in detail with more examples.

Ex. "You have created some of the fascinating women on the screen this year. You humanized such a fascinating women. You revealed them to be layered and complex and its really interesting."

What is meaning "to be" here and why did it use here.

Dear Sir, these sort of doubts are getting mad me to understand. πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™please help me.

Ex: It defines it to be a more ancient American influence. (Talking about her restaurant about how did she end up being started a restaurant)

Can you check why did "to be" use here? But your examples seemed to be easy to understand but "to be" in some sentences, for me, it is hard nut to crack like the above examples I mentioned. Can you write down such examples and explain. I don't want "to be" in passive voices because its clear for me.
