but to

When her father died, Eve had no choice but to drop out and look for a job.
I wonder why it is "to drop … look " . I think it were drop? Can you help me with this?

to drop out = to leave a course of education before the course ends (the person will not get any diploma, certificate, award, etc.)

Bev, I think what Fouryz means is if the sentence would work too without the ‘to’ before ‘drop out’.[YSaerTTEW443543]

TOEIC listening, question-response: Who’s Jean Carrier’s supervisor?[YSaerTTEW443543]

Yes, that’s what I mean, Torsten! :slight_smile:
