28). Identify all of the complete infinitive phrases in the following sentence.

Joe wants to run through the crowd of people, and he wants to sprint across the finish line.

A. Joe wants
B. Joe wants to run
C. to run
D. to run through the crowd of people
E. he wants to sprint
to sprint
to sprint across the finish line


The correct answers are A and E. An infinitive verb is one that has not been conjugated yet. It is almost always preceded by "to." In this sentence, "to run" and "to sprint" are infinitive verbs. Infinitive phrases also include the agents of the infinitive verb, in this case "Joe" and "he." So, the infinitive phrases are "Joe wants to run" and "he wants to sprint."
