What is the difference between the following structures:
Power is liable to be abused.
Although I cannot find the sentence of
Power is liable to being abused.
I can find some other sentences in which "liable to being" was used.
Swimming animals are liable to being hit by boats.
I can feel that the word power as a subject is something affects something else. However, the sentence is passive voice. On the other hand, the word animals are object affected by action in terms of meaning.
So I am confused when should I use "...liable to be V3..." and "...liable to being V3..."
From Google Ngram results I can see for some verbs both form is used such as " liable to be called/ being called" or "liable to be taken/being taken".
