Are these two sentences right using "I stopped?"

gerund object - I stopped to fix the flat tire.

infinitival object - I stopped fixing the flat tire.

  • English -

    No.

    Please see my last explanation.

  • English -

    So my sentences should be:

    I stopped to fix the flat tire. (infinitival)
    I stopped fixing the flat tire. (gerund)

    Is this correct?

  • English -

    Yes. :-) Now you've got it!
