Cheers

The first one is natural.
The second one is incorrect, because passive always goes with past participle

Thanks Sir, appreciate it.

Regards.

Hi,

Can you tell me if I am correct on these meaning, please?


I saw that it was breaking. (It means I saw the process of breaking).

I saw it breaking. (It means I saw the process of breaking).

You don't necessarily have to do it. adverb

it necessarily cause a problem. adverb

You don't necessary have to do it. adj (this one is wrong)

it necessary cause a problem. adj (this one is wrong)




You are not necessary to do that. adj

It is necessary to go school as a student. adj


Thanks in advance.

I would rather use these sentences without necessarily, that`s too much emphasizing. You don`t have to do that is more than enough.

It necessarily causes a problem - I would switch necessarily to definitely.

Try to keep things simple, avoid using difficult words in your speech.
