A verb must match in number and person about it. (a) If the subject is the singular of the third person, most English verbs end on -s or -il, but there is no -s or -il in the plural of the third person. He goes to school. They go to school. Sita goes to school. Sita and Rama go to school. You eat a mango. Ram eats a mango. Exceptions (i) The verb “to be” and its forms are exempt from this rule: he is a friend. I am your friend. They are friends.
Two or more singular subjects, linked by “or”, “or”, “ni”, “ni” or “ni” take a verb in the singular. Example: Question 3. Underline the verbs in the following sentences and indicate whether they are in the active or passive voice. Sita loves Savitri. (ii) The wall is built by the mason. (iii) Some boys helped the injured man. Iv) The man killed the snake. (v) The food prepared by Asha was eaten by Ram. Answer: (i) Sita loves Savitri. – (Active) (ii) The wall is built by the mason.
– (Passive) (iii) Some boys helped the injured man. – (Active) (iv) Man killed the snake. – (Active) (v) The food prepared by Asha was eaten by Ram. Prepared – (Active) has been eaten — (Passive) A verb connecting a noun or adjective in the predicate is related to the subject. The forms of the verb “to be” are the most common unifying verbs. Linked verbs can be used in all three temporal forms. Some nouns that are in the plural form, but the singular in the sense, take on a singular verb. Example: if two singulars refer to the same person or the same thing, the verb must be singular. For example, if two subjects express an idea together, the verb will be in the singular.
Example: Verbs have three main parts. These are present, past and past participations. For regular verbs, the form of the past tense is formed by adding ed to the presensence; and the past participation is formed using the verb of the past tense with an auxiliary verb like. Example: Insert is` or are` in the following sentences: 1. There……. Two boys who are there. 2. There….. many students at school. 3. Today there is…..
Many boys are absent from the class. 4. If you need some money, there is….. A few in my pocket. 5. There….. Sixteen players selected for the tour of Australia. 6.
There….. a fair balance between emotions and intelligence in him. 7. There….. Nothing so delightful. 8. …….. Is there anyone? 9.
There….. There is no light here. 10. There……. total darkness inside. Answers: 1. are 2. are 3. are 4.
is 5. are 6. is 7. is 8. is 9. is 10. is the example: he is a good boy. (Singularsubstreff, Singularverb) They are good players (plural subject, plural verb) Action verb While there are different types of verbs, today`s lesson focuses on action verbs.
Say what the subject does in a sentence. Words like navigation, climbing, oscillation, slide, narration and response are words of action. However, it should be noted that if one thinks of the individuals who make up the collective noun, it can accept a plural verblage. Example: if two or more singular subjects are related to each other by “and”, the plural abraquement is used. Example: if a plural noun is between a singular subject and its verb, the verb used is singular. Example: If the subject of the verb is a relative pronoun, care must be taken to ensure that the verb in number and person corresponds to the precursor of the parent. Example: Types of verbs Action message An action word says what the subject does. (build, laugh, walk, express) or that it exists.
(is, are, were, were) Examples: insert the correct shape of the present in the spaces. Verbs are in parentheses. 1. A new home….. A lot of money. (Costs) 2. The new car….. Very quickly.
(run) 3. Most things….. more than before. (Costs) 4. This aircraft ……. faster than sound….
