    Put the verb into the correct form, -ing or to ….
    Example: 1 a I was very tired. I tried to keep (keep) my eyes open but I couldn't.

    1b I rang the doorbell but there was no answer. Then I tried ….......(knock) on the door, but there was still no answer. → I rang the doorbell but there was no answer. Then I tried knocking on the door, but there was still no answer.
    1c We tried …............ (put) the fire out but we were unsuccessful. We had to call the fire brigade. → We tried to put the fire out but we were unsuccessful. We had to call the fire brigade.

    5 I've got a terrible headache. I wish it would go. Have you ….......... → Have you tried taking an aspirin?

    For each sentence, write another one with need(s) + one of the following verbs:
    clean, cut, empty, redecorate, tighten.

    Example: 1 Her jacket is dirty. → It needs cleaning.

    2 The grass is very long. It …........... → The grass is very long. It needs cutting.

    I tried to keep my eyes open but I couldn't. On doit garder 'open' car ici c'est l'adjectif, pas le participe passé.

    Bonjour.

    To try peut être suivi d'un infinitif complet ou d'un gérondif.

    1- try + infinitif = tenter de , s'efforcer de
    2- try + V-ing = essayer à titre d'expérience, pour voir ce que cela fait.

    I can't open the door. The key won't turn. Try turning it the other way.
    The TV picture isn't very good. What can I do about it? Have you tried moving the aerial?
    I can't contact Fred. He's not at home. What shall I do? Why don't you try to phone him at work.
    I've got a terrible headache. I wish it would go. Have you tried taking an aspirin?

    d'autres exemples:

    We tried to put the fire out but we were unsuccessful. We had to call the fire brigade (On s'est efforcé d'éteindre le feu, en vain)

    I tried to reach the shelf but I wasn't tall enough.(même remarque: j'ai fait un effort, sans succès)

    Bonjour à toutes et à tous,

    je vous remercie pour vos réponses. Cependant, pourriez-vous me confirmer que tout ce que vous avez écrit en bleu correspond aux bonnes réponses, et donc que ce que j'avais écrit est erroné et à corriger (on doit bien écrire ce que vous avez mis en bleu, et pas l'un ou l'autre)?

    Merci d'avance.

    Bonjour à toutes et à tous,

    je vous remercie encore pour vos réponses. Je vous mets ci-dessous ce que j'ai finalement rendu hier soir. Il en résulte que j'ai obtenu un "sans faute" sur l'ensemble de ces exercices (selon ma professeur d'Anglais).
