In the following sentence

  1. He decided to get up early, to wear nice dress and to visit his aunt.

Conjugation and is used. Since after and before and same proposition is used. So my question is can we omit any of them and write

  1. He decided to get up early, wear nice dress and visit his aunt.

Or

  1. He decided to get up early, to wear nice dress and visit his aunt.

    2. is the most natural, though I would say "dress smartly" (or "wear nice clothes") rather than "wear nice dress". – BillJ May 16 '19 at 8:55

Conjugation and is used.

should be:

Conjunction and is used.


Sentence 1 is the most correct, as it implements the parallel structure.

Sentence 2 is also acceptable, it uses only one "to" for all verbs.

Sentence 3 is the least desirable, as there is no rule followed.
