'apologised for' 'verb + -ing':"OK, I'm sorry for making you worry." - She apologised for making us worry.2. 'promised' + infinitive:"I won't lie to you again, I promise." - She promised not to lie to us again.3. 'admitted' + 'verb + -ing':"I was really meeting a boy." - She admitted meeting a boy.4. 'suggested' + 'verb + -ing'"Why don't I bring him home to meet you?" - She suggested bringing him home to meet us.5. 'suggested' + should - different subject:"Good idea - bring him this weekend." - I suggested she should bring him this weekend.
