|Infinitive (Adjective) Recognition Practice
Review: An infinitive is a verb form used as a noun, adjective or adverb. The infinitive is formed by using the word "to" (not a preposition) and the base of the verb. Examples: to run, to write, etc.
Adjective Review: Remember that an adjective is a word that modifies a noun or pronoun and answers the questions: which one? what kind? and how many? An infinitive that acts like an adjective will do the same thing.
Exercise Directions: Find the infinitives that are acting like
adjectives in the following sentences. Write down the infinitive
and then what word it modifies. (Remember that the word has to be
a noun or pronoun.)
1. Who was the first one to land on the moon?
