Hello GE Community,
I have a question regarding the verb pattern :
[ Verb (of perception) + objective + bare infinitive / gerund ]
Why in some cases we use a bare infinitive :
- "Do you like seeing people compete on reality shows? if so, which ones?"
And sometimes we use gerund:
- "On reality shows, you often see people behaving badly. Do you think shows like that are a bad influence on society?"
How should I know when to use a bare infinitive or a gerund?
Thank you in advance.
