In a noun phrase (NP), a verb phrase (VP) can act as a complement of a noun as follows:
OPEC's decision to cut production by more than 1.5m barrels a day
the option to replace you with your legal guardian
the ability to regulate
the opportunity to fix that
It seems that a VP acting as a complement of a noun in an NP can only take the form of a to-infinitive phrase.
Currently, I cannot think of any other form of VP (i.e., a bare infinitive phrase or a gerund-participle phrase) acting as a complement of a noun in an NP.
I'd like to know if this is true, and if so, what the reason might be.
