If the subject of the verb is a relative pronoun, it is important to ensure that the verb in number and in person matches the parent`s precursor. Example: a transitive verb requires a direct object to complete its meaning. The meaning of a sentence with a transitive verb is not complete without a direct object. 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. However, it must be kept in mind that if the individuals who make up the collective noun are thought of, it can take a plural verb. Example: The title of a book, play, history, musical composition and the name of a country, although plural in the form of a singular verb. Example: Fill spaces with corresponding verb shapes. Select the answers in the brackets options. A helping verb indicates when the action of a sentence takes place. The verb helping has several forms on, is, are, were and will be. Examples: B. Edit the following sentences to solve problems related to the subject-verb chord and write the edited sentence. If a sentence is correct, write “correctly.” Example: (ii) Can, must, must and must and auxiliaries have and should not have “s” in singular or plural.
What the Lord will ask, the servant will do. The servants will do what they ask. If “wants” is a complete verb meaning desire, it follows the rule for most other verbs and accepts `-s` if the subject is a singular third person. No matter what God wants, man cannot change. Words that end with `y` and have a consonant before that `y` the `y` in T and `-it is added if the subject is a singular third person. Ram`s counting on me. He`s doing his best. He`s flying a kite. Transitive and intransitive verbs An intransitive verb may be alone in the predicate because its meaning is complete.
Example: words associated with a singular subject, with, in addition or parentetic, and therefore have no influence on the number of verbs. Example: Insert `or are` into the following sentences: 1. There……… two boys standing there. 2. There………. many students at school. 3.
Today there is ………. A lot of boys are absent from the class. 4. If you need money, there is ……… A few in my pocket. 5. There ……… Sixteen players selected to travel to Australia. 6. There……….
