Action verbs There are several types of verbs, but today`s lesson focuses on action verbs. Action verbs tell what the theme of a sentence does. Words like navigating, climbing, swinging, swiping, telling and answering are action verbs. If the subjects related to `or`, `nor` have different numbers, the verb must be plural and the plural subject should be placed next to the verb. For example, select the correct form of the verb that corresponds to the object. A transitive verb needs a direct object to complete its meaning. The meaning of a sentence with a transitive verb is not complete without a direct object. (b) Only one subject is sometimes confused as a plural, for example. B when it starts with (one of the nis, neither, etc.). Remember that they should be considered singular. Every one of you is wrong.
None of them work here. A teacher teaches English. If two distinct names refer to the same person or person, the verb must be singular. Example: A. Highlight the subject (or the compound subject) and then co-click on the verb that corresponds to it. The first one was made for you. Insert the correct form of verbs into the spaces in the following sentences: 1. A good dictionary………
A lot of things. (costs) 2. These five chairs ……… A thousand rupees. (costs) 3. Ten kilometres……… A long walk. (be) 4. Sita ……… Next to my house.
(live) 5. Bread and butter…….. Healthy food. (be) 6. One of these three boys ……… every year in his classroom. (situation) 7. My kite ……… very high in the sky.
(Mouches) 8. You ……… It`s dark. (lok) 9. All the students of this school ……… English. 10. My lawn………
very beautiful in the spring. (see) Answers: 1. Cost 2. Cost 3. is 4. lives 5. is 6. stands 7. Steal 8. Look 9. learn A verb must correspond in number and in person with its subject.
(a) If the subject is a third person is singular, most English verbs end in -s or -it, but there are no -s or -it in plural third. He goes to school. You go to school. Sita goes to school. Sita and Rama go to school. They`re eating a mango. Ram eats a mango. Exceptions (i) The verb `be` and its forms are an exception to this rule: it is a friend.
I`m your friend. They`re friends. Two or more subjects, linked by `or`, `nor`, `neither` or `nor`, take a verb in the singular. For example, if two subjects together express an idea, the verb will be in the singular. Example: Types of verbs Verbs A word of action indicates what the subject is doing. (build, laugh, walk, express) or exist. (is, are, were, were) Examples: Transitive and Intransitive Word An intransitive verb may be alone in the predicate because its meaning is complete. For example, it should be noted that the article is used only once if both names refer to the same person. If one referred to different people, the article would be used before each noun and the verb would be plural.
Example: 15. Mathematics (is, are) John`s favorite subject, while Civics (are) Andreas the favorite subject. (c) When a sentence begins with “there,” the verb corresponds to the actual subject that comes after the verb. John`s coming. There are 50 students in my class. Fill the spaces with a verb form corresponding to the object. (d) If the subject is plural but represents a single figure or quantity, a singular verb is required. One hundred kilometres is a long distance.
A thousand rupees is not much these days. Dal and Roti are a dinner in northern India. A Thousand Leagues Under The Sea is a famous novel.
