INFINITIVE VERB

When we use preposition ‘to’ before any base form of verb, it is called Infinitive Verb. eg. To see, To help, To care etc.

  Uses of Infinitive Verbs
In a sentence if Infinite Verb is to be used, it is a Normal Verb, which come first and then second is Infinitive Verb.
 
Examples
I like to read.  
  Note : Here normal verb ‘like’ comes first and second ‘to read’ follows.
When normal verbs like let, make, bid, see, feel, hear, watch are used in a sentence, we do not use ‘to’ in the Infinitive Verb.
 
Examples
Let her make the notes.  
  Note : Here normal verb ‘like’ comes first and second ‘to read’ follows.
Verb help can be used with or without ‘to’.
 
Examples
I like to help her.  
Please help her.
