Wulliam became famous and had a chance to study in high school again.
-------------------------
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?

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