Hi

Please, are either of these sentences correct?:

I'll never know what makes the rain to fall.
I'll never know what makes the rain fall.

Thanks

    Thank you.
    I'm almost sure that the first sentence is correct. But the second one is likely incorrect. But I'm not sure at all.

    As Wandle says, the second is more common in speech and writing. The first has a somewhat poetic sound to it (or at least very flowery prose).
