    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. General truth
    Explanation
    The present tense of verbs is used to express general truths. This means that when we use present tense verbs, we are stating something that is always true or generally true. It is not specific to a particular time or situation. For example, "The sun rises in the east" is a general truth that applies to every day.

    • C.

      both -d or -ed

    • D.

      -ing

    Correct Answer
    A. Only -d
    Explanation
    The correct answer is only -d. In English, the past tense of regular verbs is typically formed by adding -ed to the base form of the verb. However, there are some verbs that end in a silent -e, such as "love" or "live," where only -d is added to form the past tense. Therefore, the suffix -ed is not always used for forming the past tense of verbs, and in this case, only -d is the correct option.

    Correct Answer
    A. Risen
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "risen" because the sentence is in the present perfect tense, which indicates an action that started in the past and is still ongoing or has just been completed. "Risen" is the past participle form of the verb "rise," which is used in the present perfect tense to show that the sun has already completed the action of rising in the east.
