Would you help me with that-I need for explanation of using -ing with verbs.Wneh we put -ing and when we don't.

Complete the sentences with the correct form of the
verb in brackets.
Example I adore spending (spend) time with
family and friends.
1 We’re planning __________ (expand) the company
over the next two years.
2 It took me a while to get used to __________ (live)
alone.

It may seem kind of tiresome, but it's best if you try to answer the questions yourself first, then someone can check if you're correct.

That's correct.

"get used to", in the sense of become accustomed to, needs to be followed by a noun or noun phrase (for example, "I can't get used to this food"). "live alone" cannot be a noun phrase.

"plan to (do something)" needs to be followed by a verb infinitive.
