It will be great if someone can help rectifying it.

May I know which one above is grammatical?

1 Answer 1


After the verb "to help" comes infinitive: (He helps me do this)

You can also use the preposition (to): (He helps me to do this)

Your first sentence is the correct one

    The second one is ungrammatical, but We need help rectifying it is grammatical, because help can be a noun, too; here it's used as object of help, with a modifying gerund clause, meaning help in rectifying it. Mar 12, 2020 at 18:37
