In each sentence, the subject and the verb must agree personally (first, second or third) and number (singular or plural). Examples: Question 1. Choose the correct form of the verb that matches the theme. (i) Either the answer (is, is) acceptable. (ii) Each of these books are fiction. (iii) No one (knows, knows) the problems I`ve seen. (iv) (Are, are) the five or six messages? (v) Mathematics (is, is) John`s favorite subject, while Civics (are) Andreas the preferred subject. (vi) Eight dollars is the price of a movie these days. (vii) Is the tweezer in this drawer? (viii) Your pants (east, are) at the cleaner.
ix) There were fifteen candies in that bag. Now these (is, are) are now one. x) The committee (debate, debate) is attentive to these issues. Answer: (i) is (ii) white (iv) is (v) est (vi) est (vii) est (viii) are (ix) were, is (x) debates 4. Modal verbs: The following verbs are called modal verbs. The following verbs are called modal verbs. Must, wants, wants, could, could, could, must, must, must and dare, modal verbs are called. 1.
In sentences that begin with an introduction, the verb comes before the subject. Examples: 6. Some boys______________ (disturb/disturb) the whole class. 1. Transitive Word: Examples: Mr. Hales takes class this morning. With these sentences, Mr. Hales takes the class.
Here we go. The word “Mr. Hales” is Nov. The word “class” is the object. The word “takes” is the verb. It is only when the three words are there that all sentences become complete and meaningful. In the event that the object word is not there, the phrase “Mr. Hales takes” makes no sense and the sentences are not complete. In this case, “What is Mr. Hales taking?” is not clear. It is only when the verb “takes” receives an object that the meaning behind the verb “takes” becomes complete.
This means that the verb “takes” needs an object to make itself complete. Such a verb, which requires an object, is called a transitory verb. This means that the effect of the verb is transferred to another noun or something else. Combine the following sentences with an appropriate form of verb indicated in parentheses. However: Singular Subject and Singular subject – it/she/he singular A. In each of the following lines, a verb does not match the theme. Point out the wrong verb and write it correctly. 4.
Words like, everyone, either…, nor …, anyone, one, many, a little designate an `he/shelit`, so that they take a singular verb. Examples: Question 8. Neither the boy nor the girl……………. It was in the classroom. Answer: Neither the boy nor the girl were in class. 2. Singular subject – and singular subject – they – plural singular subject – and plural subject – they – plural Examples: Choose the correct form of the verb that corresponds to the subject. Question 2: Fill in the spaces that each sentence has in accordance with the subject-verb agreement. 11. None______________ (seems or seems) to be taken seriously in the classroom. Notes: 1. Many transitive verbs can also be used as intransitive verbs.
Examples: 3. With or even: If two names or pronouns are linked or connected, the verb corresponds to the first of them.
