    That futile young man does nothing but waste money.

    does ( nothing but ) waste money.

    . .↓ └ 副詞片語 →修飾→ ┘ ( nothing but ph. 僅僅 / 只有;只不過 )

    . .└ →助動詞 → →修飾→ ┘ ← ●所以 waste:原形動詞。

    Does it mean that "wastes money" is incorrect?

    大大你好

    這句

    That futile young man does nothing but waste money.

    重點在does nothing but=only to

    所以是only to waste

    而這就是waste不+s的原因

    Because "to" is omitted:

    That futile young man does nothing but (to) waste money.
