This is a classic conundrum, called the split infinitive. I never understood it myself.

Haha read this, which will only confuse you more: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Split_infinitive

As per the MGMAT SC guide split infinitives are incorrect.

to and verb should not be sperated like to quickly walk
to walk quickly is the correct form, the guide says.
