In this sentence, what is the role of "to....." in "a chance to..."?
I mean the relationship between 'a chance' and "the to infinitive." Are they in apposition? Or does "the to infinitive" modify 'chance' and have the role of the adjective use?

• English -

I'd say the infinitive phrase is acting as an adjective here, telling what kind of chance it is.
