expected to do (sounds perfect)
expected to be mom
expected to cause flooding.
expected to kill millitants.
expected to report a loss
expected to report a profit.
All above statements are correct.
-----------------------------
here.. expect--> hope,think, suppose
expected a reported loss --> awkward.. awful..
reported loss --> loss already reported.
expected a reported loss --> you can't expect already "reported loss." .. out come is already reported.

you can expect that is not reported..
reported loss --correct
expected reported loss -- incorrect.
expected loss - correct.
