    Is the following question correct?
    'What would you rather be tempted by?'
    What about : 'what would you rather be tempted to?'
    Are they both correct?
    How could we answer them? The first one with a noun and the second one with a verb? What about an -ing form?
    Thanks for any help I could get!

    What would you rather be tempted by? :tick:
    La réponse : la chose (une forme nominale, y compris le gerund, à savoir la forme V-ing, si l'idée est logique) qui pourrait vous tenter.

    what would you rather be tempted to? :cross: --> what would you rather be tempted to do?
    La réponse : un infinitif
