Is the expression commonly used by native speakers?
1. One would be more likely to read it than to hear it.
2. One would be more likely read it than hear it.

Which is the correct sentence?

Thanks.

    The first is grammatical. The second is not.

    You could correct the second by either including "to" after "likely" (you don't need it after "than" as well) or deleting "be".

    I think most people would say: One is more likely to... or You are more likely to...
