'It stops raining' vs. 'It stops to rain'

Hi teachers :smiley:

I’ve got one question for you.

It stops to rain.
Does this sentence make any sense?

If it has sense. What the difference between

[color=blue]It stops raining. and
It stops to rain.

Thanks in advance


Hi Jupiter,

Stop is a verb that is followed by a gerund (ing form). In your sentences, the only possibility is stops raining

You can say stop to but it has an entirely different meaning as in: He stopped to open the door - meaning he stopped in order to open the door.
