Verb Questions and Answers (Q&A)

There is no big difference between 'give it up' and 'applaud'. Give it up as a phrasal verb, has almost the same meaning as applaud. 'Give it up' has different meanings unlike 'applaud'. Applaud means to clap for someone as a result of a well-done job, or when you are recognizing the presence of someone. In this case, give it up is used alongside 'for', i.e. you are giving it up for someone.

For example: let's give it up for John, for the brilliant idea he came up with. However, give it up might have other meanings aside to clap for someone. 'Give it up' is also used when trying to quit or stop a particular habit. It is also used to mean; you are no longer pursuing something probably because you kept failing at every attempt. For example: I'm no longer pursuing my academic goal because I already gave it up.

Majorly, affect is used as a verb, while the effect is used as a noun, though the effect can also be used as a noun sometimes, and effectively used as a verb, but in rare cases. When something affects another thing, it leaves an effect on it, while something has surely been affected when there is an effect on it. Sometimes also, affect is seen as a misspelling for effect. When affect comes as a noun, it indicates an emotion or feelings, while effect means the consequences or end results of a process or action.

However, when they are used as a verb, affect means to have an influence on something, while effect means to bring about as a result of something. The synonyms of effect include: to change, influence, modify, overcome, transform, take on, act on, alter, disturb, relate, etc. On the other hand, the synonyms of effect include consequence, outcome, outgrowth, reaction, aftermath, conclusion, etc.

The verb is a part of speech, and verbs are generally action words. Verbs are words which indicate action, event, and state of things. Verbs are grouped into different parts, we have lexical verbs, modal verbs, helping and linking verbs. Helping and linking verbs are related because they are two types of verbs, but differ when it comes to how they are used in forming a sentence. Linking verbs are verbs which are used to attach the subject of a sentence to another word entirely.

For example, I am cool. The linking verb here is 'am'. One important thing to note is that linking verbs are not action words. Examples are, am, was, were, be, being, etc. Helping verbs, on the other hand, are also known as auxiliary verbs, they are used together with main verbs. On their own, they don't have any meaning, but they add meaning to main verbs when you use them together. Examples are; has, have, had, etc.

Let's see how far my knowledge stretches

Both the words "incite" and "insight" are pronounced exactly the same way, but they have totally different meaning. Incite means to advise and encourage someone to do what is violent or unpleasant, and will cause harm to them. An example of a sentence in which incite is used is: "the speech given by the man encouraged the louts to cause more trouble. The word "incite" is a verb that can also means "to entice someone into doing something for a reward".

For example; "the armed robbers incited him to join them by enticing him with money. On the other hand, "insight", which is a noun, means "the ability to have a clear understanding of something", or "the ability to have a good understanding of someone". For example; "the more experience you have as a leader determines your level of insight into situations". Thus, the word "incite" and "insight" are totally different from themselves, and cannot be used interchangeably for each other, else it will convey an entirely different meaning.

A verb is one of the main parts of a sentence or question in English.In fact, you can’t have a sentence or a question without a verb! That’s how important these “action” parts of speech are. The verb signals an action, an occurrence, or a state of being. Whether mental, physical, or mechanical, verbs always express activity.

Physical verbs are action verbs. They describe specific physical actions. If you can create a motion with your body or use a tool to complete an action, the word you use to describe it is most likely a physical verb. Mental verbs have meanings that are related to concepts such as discovering, understanding, thinking, or planning. In general, a mental verb refers to a cognitive state. Also known as linking verbs, state of being verbs describe conditions or situations that exist. State of being verbs are inactive since no action is being performed. These verbs are usually complemented by adjectives.

In order to solve the question, it will help to remember all of the details that are presented. Out of the 8 new students, Ms. Banger is available Tuesday in the morning which means that she has to take a morning class. Mr. Bumpem can take either morning or afternoon classes. Mrs. Exhaust is free all day on Tuesday but since Ms. Banger is already taking the AM class, she has to take the afternoon class on a Tuesday.

Mr. Hilstart can only take Wednesday afternoons. Miss Boot would need to take the Friday morning classes and Miss Boot will take the Saturday afternoon classes. Mrs. Speed would need to take the Friday afternoon class since Miss Boot is already taking the AM class. Mr. Parker would need to take the Saturday morning classes since Miss Boot is taking the afternoon class. Based on this, the answer is Mr. Bumpem and Mr. Parker or letter E.
