Recently when I wanted to submit a research paper on a conference web site I saw something like this:
"In answer to many requests, it was decided to extended the paper submission."
And I'm wondering if it's correct English. Shouldn't it be written as:
"In answer to many requests, it was decided to extend the paper submission."
I know that if we want to say that we have more time to submit the paper, we can use other words: " The paper submission was extended". Then the "extended" word is used correctly. Am I right, or is the first sentence still grammatically correct? If so, why?
