"Chosen to not" or "Chosen not to"?

Postby Ackoman » Thu Mar 16, 2017 11:26 pm


Please settle an argument.....

Is it more correct to say

"The other student has chosen to not make a complaint about your behaviour"


"The other student has chosen not to make a complaint about your behaviour"?

I think it is the first, but my wife thinks it is the second. Who is right? Or are we both as right as each other?
