Filed under: Allgemein — @ 14:30

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: Question 2. Specify whether the verbs highlighted in the sentences below have been used in their transitive or intransfivable forms. (i) Ants fought wasps. (ii) Some ants struggle hard. (iii) Ring the bell, Rama. iv) The vessel was shipped quickly. (v) This horse never happens. Answer: (i) Transitiviv (ii) Intransitiv (iii) Transitivif (iv) Intransitiv (v) Intransitive Example: He is a good boy. (Singular subject, singular verb) They are good players (plural subject, plural verb) (d) If the subject is plural, but represents a single figure or quantity, it is necessary a singular verb. 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. 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 two subjects together express an idea, the verb will be in the singular. Example: D. Point out the subject of the sentence and the correct verb in the following sentences.

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. (ii) Can, must, can and must and auxiliaries do 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. If two or more singular subjects are linked by `and` with each other, the plural verb is used. Example: 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. Question 3. Highlight the verbs in the sentences below and indicate whether they are in the active or passive voice. (i) 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.
