This is a -ed and -ing review for a suffix unit


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Read the sentences. Look at the underlined verbs. Which sentence is correct?

    • A.

      Alex is danceing to the music.

    • B.

      Alex is dancing to the music.

    • C.

      Alex is dancieing to the music.

    • D.

      Alex will dancing to the music.

    Correct Answer
    B. Alex is dancing to the music.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Alex is dancing to the music." The verb form "is dancing" is the correct present continuous tense to describe an action that is happening at the moment of speaking. The other options, "is danceing" and "is dancieing," are incorrect because they do not follow the correct spelling and pronunciation rules for adding "-ing" to the base form of the verb. The last option, "Alex will dancing to the music," is incorrect because it uses the future tense "will" instead of the present continuous tense.

    • D.

      Baked

    Correct Answer
    A. Baking
    Explanation
    The present verb for bake is "baking." This is the correct answer because it follows the standard rule for forming present verbs in English by adding -ing to the base form of the verb.

  • 3. 

    Which suffix means "the past?"

    • A.

      -ed

    • B.

      -ing

    Correct Answer
    A. -ed
    Explanation
    The suffix "-ed" is used to indicate the past tense of a verb. When added to the end of a word, it signifies that the action described by the verb has already happened. For example, adding "-ed" to the verb "walk" creates the past tense form "walked," indicating that the walking occurred in the past. Therefore, "-ed" is the correct suffix that means "the past."

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which suffix means the present?

    • A.

      -ed

    • B.

      -ing

    Correct Answer
    B. -ing
    Explanation
    The suffix "-ing" is used to indicate the present tense of a verb. It is added to the base form of a verb to form the present participle. For example, in the word "running," the suffix "-ing" indicates that the action is happening in the present. Therefore, "-ing" is the correct suffix that means the present.

    Correct Answer
    C. Make
    Explanation
    The base word for "making" is "make." This is because "make" is the root word from which "making" is derived. When adding the suffix "-ing" to "make," it forms the present participle form of the verb, indicating an ongoing action or process. Therefore, "make" is the correct answer as it is the base word for "making."

    • D.

      Hoped

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The past tense verb for "to hope" is "hoped." This is the correct answer because "hoped" is the past tense form of the verb "to hope." In English, we use the past tense to talk about actions or states that occurred in the past. Therefore, when we want to indicate that we had hope in the past, we use the verb "hoped."

    • D.

      Loveed

    Correct Answer
    C. Loved
    Explanation
    The past tense verb for "to love" is "loved." This is because "loved" follows the regular pattern for forming past tense verbs in English, which is to add "-ed" to the base form of the verb. In this case, the base form of the verb is "love," so when we add "-ed" to it, we get "loved."
