About the sentence

to look into sth

to look into sth = to investigate sth. When you look into something (such as a crime, a problem or the possibility of something) you are trying to discover or find out more information about it. For example, before making a big purchase (such as a car), you probably spend some time looking into the advantages and disadvantages of different models, or how much different cars cost.


Notice the important verb pattern 'to promise to do sth', e.g. "She promised to tidy her room but she obviously couldn't be bothered".
