Hi folks,

would you say,

1-All he can do is wait/waiting/to wait ? I Think wait is the right answer
2- He did everything except mind the children. Is is correct ?
3- All you have to do is push the button or pushing/to push ?
4- What he really wanted to do was eat/eating/to eat ?

Thank you !

    Construction types existing in 1,3&4 have been confusing me too.If someone explains a way to distinguish where to write what,I really appreciate.By the way,I think 1-wait,2-minding,3-push,4-eat.
