Hello, Team. Help me with this, please. What can I get you? - Offer to get someone something. - Ask someone for something. =============== I understood correctly which answer I'll have to choose. But my question is why you didn't write 'offer' and 'ask' in ing form. Would you mind explaining, please? Thank you very much.

Hello Nizam Balinese,

It would be perfectly fine to use the -ing form here. We could also use an infinitive with to, a present continuous form or a noun form - there are many options. These are just labels.


Best wishes,
