    • B.

      Person, place or thing

    • C.

      Does not expresse an action

    Correct Answer
    A. Expresses an action
    Explanation
    This definition of a verb states that it expresses an action. In grammar, a verb is a word that describes an action, occurrence, or state of being. It is the main part of a sentence and is used to convey what the subject of the sentence is doing or experiencing. Therefore, the correct answer is "expresses an action."

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Which sentence has an action verb?

    • A.

      You hit me

    • B.

      She likes her bike

    • C.

      She dreamed of me.

    Correct Answer
    A. You hit me
    Explanation
    An action verb is a type of verb that conveys an action or a physical activity that someone or something is doing. It represents a dynamic, tangible event or process. In the sentence "you hit me," the word "hit" is an action verb because it describes an action – the act of hitting or striking something or someone.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    A linking verb does express an action

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A linking verb does not express an action. Instead, it connects the subject of a sentence with a noun, pronoun, or adjective that renames or describes the subject. Examples of linking verbs include "is," "are," "was," "were," "become," and "seem." These verbs do not show any action being performed by the subject.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    What three verbs are part of a Auxiliary verb?

    • A.

      Be, have, do

    • B.

      Am, is, there

    • C.

      Are, was were

    Correct Answer
    A. Be, have, do
    Explanation
    These three verbs, "be," "have," and "do," are auxiliary verbs (also known as helping verbs) in English grammar. They are used in conjunction with main verbs to form verb tenses, questions, negatives, and other grammatical structures. The other options provided are not lists of auxiliary verbs; they consist of various forms of the verb "be" (e.g., "am," "is," "are," "was," "were") but do not include the full set of auxiliary verbs.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Pick the correct transitive and intransitive

    • A.

      Transitive: the storm sank the ship

    • B.

      Transitive: the boat crashed

    • C.

      Intransitive: the ship sank

    • D.

      Intransitive: the boat started rocking

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Transitive: the storm sank the ship
    C. Intransitive: the ship sank
    Explanation
    The transitive sentence "the storm sank the ship" indicates that the storm caused the ship to sink. The subject (storm) is performing the action (sank) on the object (ship).

    The intransitive sentence "the ship sank" implies that the ship sank without any external force or agent causing it. The subject (ship) is performing the action (sank) on itself.

    Therefore, the explanation suggests that "the storm sank the ship" is a transitive sentence, while "the ship sank" is an intransitive sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    What are the four principal parts of action and liking verbs.

    • A.

      Yesterday, tomorrow, today, later

    • B.

      Past, present, future, today

    • C.

      Present, present participle, past, past participle

    Correct Answer
    C. Present, present participle, past, past participle
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "present, present participle, past, past participle." This answer correctly identifies the four principal parts of action and liking verbs. The present form of the verb refers to the current action or state, the present participle form is used to indicate ongoing or continuous action, the past form refers to actions or states that have already occurred, and the past participle form is used to form various tenses and is often used in passive constructions.

    Rate this question:

      2; present tense and future tense

    Correct Answer
    A. 6; present tense, past tense, future tense, present perfect tense, past perfect tense, and future perfect tense
    Explanation
    The question asks about the number and types of verb tenses. The correct answer states that there are 6 verb tenses: present tense, past tense, future tense, present perfect tense, past perfect tense, and future perfect tense. This answer accurately identifies the different verb tenses that exist in the English language.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    What is a example of prgressive forms.

    • A.

      His boots freeze, and he shook with cold.

    • B.

      She is rehearsing her lines

    • C.

      They wished they started earlier.

    Correct Answer
    B. She is rehearsing her lines
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "She is rehearsing her lines." This sentence demonstrates the progressive form because it uses the present continuous tense ("is rehearsing") to indicate an ongoing action in the present moment. The other two sentences do not show progressive forms as they use simple past tense ("shook") and past tense ("wished") respectively.

    Rate this question:

  • 9.

    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true. Active and passive verbs indicate whether the subject of a sentence is performing the action or receiving the action expressed by the verb. In an active voice, the subject performs the action, while in a passive voice, the subject receives the action. This distinction is important in understanding the role and perspective of the subject in a sentence.
