Hello, i've got some questions.

"I was afraid ... a dark room when a child".
"to enter" or "of entering"?

Thank you for your help!

    Welcome to the forum, Boniface. :)
    I was afraid ... a dark room when a child.
    "to enter" or "of entering"?
    Either is correct, but I'd add "I was" to the latter part of the sentence:
    I was afraid to enter a dark room when I was a child.
    I was afraid of entering a dark room when I was a child.

    Thank you, but I can only choose one. I can choose from such forms:
    To enter
    entering
    of entering
    enter

    Are you saying that this was a question on a test (not a sentence you're writing)? Then whoever gave you the test is wrong if they say there is only one correct answer, because there are TWO correct answers.
