I’d like to ask you a grammar question.
Which one is gramatically corret?

All I have to do is wash the dishes.
All I have to do is to wash the dishes.

If the first is right one, I’d also like to know the reason.

Thanks for your help~

well, I think the second one is corrent though. for the first one, it would be correct if u change “wash” to “washing”, “is” should be followed by either n. or prep.

so native english speakers don’t really abide by the grammar rules when they are speaking, it doesn’t matter if u use do, did or does etc right?
