2. He delayed to leave for Paris.
(Which one is right?)

3. He refused to go / going back home.
4. He rejected to go / going back home.
(Do we have to use 'to go' or' going' in #3 and #4?)

  • English -

    #1 is correct.

    In #3 and #4 you could u se either.


  • English -

    Sra is correct for 3 and 4 -- both are grammatically correct.

    I think, however, that we use "to go" in that construction far more than "going."
