    Cevap: Gerunds - Infinitives and Participles Exercises

    After like it is sometimes possible to use either gerund or infinitive, but there tends to be a slight difference in implication.
    like + gerund usually means 'enjoy'; it also usually implies that the action is/was performed: I like skating = I enjoy skating (and do skate).
    like + infinitive has more the meaning of 'approve of, like the idea or habit'. In the affirmative it gives no indication as to whether the action is performed or not, and in the negative implies that it is not performed.

    I didn't like saying it usually means 1 said it, unwillingly', but
    I didn't like to say it usually means 1 didn't say it' (because it didn't seem right or
    sensible). The distinction, however, is not rigid. The above notes are, therefore, only
    guides which may safely be followed.
    Put the verbs in brackets into gerund or infinitive.

    6 Why do you keep (look) back? Are you afraid of (be) followed?
    7 Do you remember (post) the letter? ~
    Yes, I do; I posted it in the letter-box near my gate.

    8 Did you remember (lock) the door? ~
    No, I didn't. I'd better (go) back and (do) it now.

    9 You still have a lot (learn) if you'll forgive my (say) so.
    10 It's no use (try) (interrupt) him. You'll have (wait) till he stops (talk).
    11 I'm for (do) nothing till the police arrive. They don't like you (move) anything when a crime has been committed.
    12 He didn't like (leave) the children alone in the house but he had no alternative as he had (go) out to work.
    13 Why didn't you drink it?-
    I didn't like (drink) it as I didn't know what it was.

    14 I'm very sorry for (be) late. It was good of you (wait) for me.

    16 Do you feel like (go) to a film or would you rather (stay) at home?
    17 She told me (look) through her correspondence and (take) out any letters that you had

    18 He took to (get up) early and (walk) noisily about the house.

    24 He kept (ring) up and (ask) for an explanation and she didn't know what (do) about him.
