Does he need to work there now? Though of the two, latter one sounds less awkword, and is preferable colloquially. In speech, shortness (without distortion of meaning) is preffered. Longer ones sound awkword.

@paridhis It's not about akwardness or anything else...both of these sentences are 100 correct. Whether you understand the essence of it or not grammar is always an issue. Need is used as Modal here...and modals don't take infinitives (To) however need is also used as main verb in that case first sentence should go like this..Needs he to work there now ? it's grammatically healthy now..your 2nd sentence is perfect and sound..as Modals are used in plural form sans to.

He was neither ashamed nor sorry for his deeds. (correct sentence)

He was neither sorry for nor ashamed of his behaviour.(correct sentence)

If both are correct , what preposition does "ashamed" follow? of or for? Kindly help!

First sentence , ashamed is using preposition for. So both for and of are correct?

@paridhis 2nd sentence is correct...and Ashamed does take other prepositions like to/of/for/about/to..but FOR is generally used with gerunds and it's sort of outdated today. I'm ashamed for having commit such misdeads. We are ashamed for committing such indicent acts.

in simple language whenever we encounter a conjunction, we make sure the parts joined by the conjunction are similar in structure. so to revisit and allowing does not match since both are different forms . we need similar forms of verb ..so it should be revisiting and allowing. this is because revisiting is a noun and so is allowing.

@rohitn24 Yes That's other way round of getting it correct but these guys could have said let's make allowing to To allow , to match it with To revisit, in that case how you gonna solve if . If these guys had marked error in 2

Yes you are right it's wrong grammatically but syntically it's correct. Have is a stative verb so according to that you either possess a think or not at all. Have can't be used in Have+ing form. It used in some case like I'm having a bad day. But here it means I'm going through a bad day which gonna end by the evening while in case of Knife you just have it and it's not gonna decay or disappear in some time.
