Hi!

I read the following in a TOEIC book:

“9. What company besides ours would make its employees ______ overtime on a national holiday?

A. will be working

B. worked

C. be working

D. work

(Answer: D)” ((Longman Preparation Series for the New TOEIC Test, Advanced Course, 4th Edition, p. 139))

I agree with the above that D is correct.

If there were ‘E. working’, would it be correct, also?

I don’t think ‘working’ would be correct, because I’ve never seen the structure “make + sb + doing sth” in any context.

What do you think? Do you say “make sb doing sth”

Thanks in advance.

Hi and welcome to the forums.

This is perhaps your 5th question on -ing forms verbs. None of them could take the -ing form as you suggest.

You seem to have learned a rule that you are either applying in the wrong situations, or learned a rule incorrectly.Do you have any specific questions about -ing verbs?

How can we better help you with this concept than just saying "no"?
