Writing Tip: Avoid the -ing's!

You are here: Home > Schools > SAT Test > SAT Wiki

Something I've come across when working on the Improving Sentences questions - the answer is almost never the one that begins with "-ing." For example:


1. He enjoys to swim as well as running.


A) He enjoys to swim as well as running.

Correct answer -> user posted image He enjoys swimming as well as running.

C) Swimming, he enjoys as well as running.

D) Running is almost as good as swimming, to him at least.

E) Running and swimming are his two favorites.


Only the second choice (user posted image conveys the correct meaning of the sentence.
