Revise the passage by changing all of the gerunds to infinitives and all of the infinitives to gerunds. “Giving is one of the best things people can do. To volunteer their time shows what caring people they are.”
1. Change the gerunds to infinitives. A gerund is a verb ending in -ing, but it acts as a noun. To change a gerund to an infinitive, drop the ing and change the verb back to its present tense form. Then add the word “to” in front of it. 2. Change the infinitives to gerunds. Do the opposite, add -ing to the verb (Changing spelling as necessary), drop the “to” in front. With that in mind can you try re-writing the sentence?
