    Which words are italicized?

  • english -

    I watch for the sales

  • english -

    I save money by watching for sales.

  • english -

    thank you.

    Now I need to combine the sentences by changing the italicized word group to an infinitive or infinitive phrase.

    The weather bureau uses balloon. They determine the temperature aloft. the italicized words are - they determine the temperature aloft.

    Start by finding your verb. What is the verb in that sentence?

    Then change it to a gerund.

    Then figure out the correct preposition to use:
    By
    To
    With
    Through

    These 4 will be pretty common, but there will be others.
