(C) His bravery is worthwhile being praised.(X)
1. His bravery is worth praising.(您所寫的)
2. His bravery is worthy of being praised.
3. His bravery is worthy to be praised.
(c) N1+ be worth + Ving
= N1+ be worthy of + being + Vp.p.
= N1+ be worthy + to be + Vp.p.
be worth後頭接主動的Ving，在形式上是主動的，其意義仍然是被動的。若要用 be worthy of，就要接被動的being + Vp.p，或是be worthy後頭接不定詞to+Vp.p 的被動式。三者的意義相同。
比如例句 (A) This movie is worth seeing. = The movie is worthy of being seen.= The movie is worthy to be seen.
The second-hand house is worthy of being bought. = The second-hand house is worth buying.= The second-hand house is worthy to be bought.

"worth" is not preposition, but has the same function of it.
the worth in C is "adj."
