  1. Since "except" is used as a preposition in this sentence, the infinitive "to concentrate" must be a noun, used as the object of the preposition.

  2. Would this sentence not have an infinitive if it is part of a prep. phrase?

  3. This sentence does have an infinitive. As I said, it's used as as a noun, the object of the preposition.

    Remember that infinitives used as nouns can be subjects, direct objects, and objects of a preposition.

  4. Thank you! :)
