So, if we have ajudar + noun, we don't need the preposition "a"; and if it is ajudar+verb, then we need it? (Ajudar uma menina / ajudar a fazer o almoço)?
then it would be "eles têm ajudado a minha filha a melhorar AS notas" (melhorar = improve)
yup, my mistake. but it would be "suas" because "notas" is feminine, not "filha"
I put "daughter get better grades" and it was marked wrong. "to get better grades" sounds a little "clunky" in American English.
I could swear that in prior occurrences of this exercise I chose "notas melhores", and it was accepted.
