Fill in the blank with the most appropriate word.
Peter made Mary ____ all night.


A
to dance
loader
B
that she danced
loader
C
dance
loader
D
dancing
loader

Solution

The correct option is C dance
In the given sentence, the action of making Mary dance all night has been completed. Thus, the answer should either be in the past tense or in the simple present tense which indicates the past.
Option A is incorrect. 'to dance' in this context is grammatically incorrect because according to rules of usage the verb 'made' does not agree with the infinitive 'to dance'.
Option B is incorrect. The conjunction 'that' is a conditional conjunction and cannot be used in this context as there is no condition specified. 
Option C is correct. 'dance' here, is in the correct tense. It also agrees with the subject and is grammatically correct. 
Option D is incorrect. Since, dancing is in the participle form, it suggests that the action is incomplete, however, in the given sentence, the action has been completed. Thus, it is wrong.
