Hello, native English speakers,
I have a question.
Would all the following sentences be used?
(a) Can you help me with my homework?
(b) Can you help me do my homework?
(c) Can you help me to do my homework?
(d) Can you help me doing my homework?

Thanks in advance.

a-c are correct although most native English speakers probably wouldn't say the 'to' in c.
d is incorrect.

I'm sorry. I forgot to say thank you.
Thanks for the help, Lothor.
Do (a) and (b) have almost the same meaning?

You're welcome. (a) and (c) all have the same meaning.
