Can anyone tell me why a V-ing is used after the infinitive 'to'?
- There are four stages on the road to becoming a scientist, and I remember them all. (to become?)
- There are now a number of routes to becoming a Member of the House of Lords. (to become?)
- They were supposed to be ordinary people who gave some of their time to keeping an eye on the government and representing the people. (to keep?)
Your reply will be greatly appreciated! Daisy Lee
