Grammar question


Is this statement grammatically correct?: "I can only think about succeed" or should it instead "succeeding"?

Thanks !!

in my idea you need just a noun in that sentence which is success so the correct form is

I can only think about success

SJ's suggested change (success) is a good one.


"Succeeding" is equally appropriate.  A gerund is a form of a verb that ends with -ing.  It acts as a noun. 


I can only think about succeeding.
