Ask sb/ got Sb/ had sb

Post by Frieda » Sun Feb 24, 2019 2:39 pm

Could you help me. I do`t know which word is the correct one.
Someone did a great job of painting these rooms.
Yes, They ____ (got/asked/had) C&A do it this time.

Is it correct to say." They asked C&A do it this time" ?

Hi! Here, the correct answer is "had"
"They had C&A do it this time".

The reason is if you say "ask" or "got" you would need to add "to" before the second verb "do"
IF you used "asked", the correct sentence would be "They asked C&A to do it this time."

Good luck with your English studies!
