how is it possible to add -"ing" after "to"?

Raghav said: (Oct 17, 2011)  
I wana ask the same question. How can we add 'ing' in a verb used after 'to'?

Saurabh said: (Aug 18, 2014)  
What's the point in adding 'the' after within ?

Prabha G said: (Sep 20, 2014)  
I also ask the same question which is asked by Shuvam and Raghav?

Vimal said: (Nov 22, 2015)  
I agree with those 3 guys who asked why the "ing" form is used after "to" ?

Abhinash said: (Mar 21, 2016)  
Brothers its gerund. In gerund we can put "ing" in a verb after "to".

Arpana Kumari said: (Mar 21, 2016)  
What is the behind adding ing after to?

Ram said: (Apr 19, 2016)  
Gerund rule.

Whenever verb acts as a noun (work),then the sentence should be preposition + noun+ ing.

Sushovan said: (Feb 10, 2017)  
Agree @Ram.

Here working acts as a noun.

Soumya Suraj Mishra said: (Aug 27, 2017)  
To never takes verb+ing after it how is it possible?

Dubey said: (Aug 30, 2017)  
No, it's not a noun.

Mansi said: (Oct 4, 2017)  
It should be 'to work within the deadline'.

Akash said: (Aug 7, 2018)  
If I follow the rule of parallelism. That indicates to+verb, to+ verb & to+verb. So, why will option B not be the answer?
