Hi everyone!


I wonder what's the correct form of the following sentence: "it made him (look/looks) good". Doesn't the verb "to look" have to take an "s" at the end as it's referring to "it"?


I'll let my positive vote for those who contribute! Thank you all!

No.

It is the bare infinitive form used after the causative verb "make"

Causative verbs:

Let
Make
Have
Help.

I had Mark wash the windows.
I made Mark wash the windows.
I help Mark wash the windows.
I let Mark wash the windows.

That made him look good.
