    Identify the function of the infinitive in the sentence. Choose from the following: subject, direct object, object of the preposition, predicate noun, adjective, adverb

    1. The person to ask is your mother.
    Function of the infinitive: adjective
    OK

    2. It is too expensive to travel.
    Function of the infinitive: direct object
    no; there's no action verb there; direct objects occur only after action verbs.

    3. Chance hates to erase the boards.
    Infinitive phrase: to erase the boards
    Function of the infinitive phrase: adverb
    no; this one DOES occur right after an action verb!!

    4. To know her is to love her.
    Infinitive phrase: to know her
    Function: subject
    OK
    Infinitive phrase: to love her
    Function: predicate noun
    OK

    6. To speak clearly is essential to being understood.
    Infinitive phrase: To speak clearly
    Used in sentence as: subject
    OK

    7. My goal is to write a best-selling novel.
    Infinitive phrase: to write a best-selling novel
    Used in sentence as: predicate noun
    OK

    8. The psalmist says, "To do Thy will I take delight."
    Infinitive phrase:To do Thy will
    Object of the infinitive: will
    ?? - This is some kind of archaic phrasing. In today's English, we'd turn it around and say, "I take delight in doing Thy will" or (badly phrased) "I take delight to do Thy will." What is the infinitive closest to here? "delight" So what is its function?

    9. Mr. Hutton asked me to help with the younger children.
    Infinitive phrase: to help
    Subject: me
