    Explanation
    The underlined verb in the sentence is a non-action verb. Non-action verbs, also known as stative verbs, describe a state, condition, or a state of being rather than an action. In this case, the verb "think" is expressing a mental state or opinion about the new teacher. It is not describing a physical action but rather an internal thought or belief.

    • D.

      How does she know?

    Correct Answer
    D. How does she know?
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "How does she know?" This is the correct form of the question in the present simple tense. In English, when using the auxiliary verb "do" to form a question in the present simple tense, the main verb should be in its base form (without "s" or "es" ending). Therefore, the correct form is "How does she know?"

      Do you wear a hat sometimes?

    • D.

      Do you wearing a hat sometimes?

    Correct Answer
    C. Do you wear a hat sometimes?
    Explanation
    The correct form is "Do you wear a hat sometimes?" This is because when asking a question about a habitual action or a general fact, we use the base form of the verb after "do." In this case, "wear" is the base form of the verb, while "wearing" is the present participle form. Therefore, "Do you wear a hat sometimes?" is the correct question form.

      What does that hamburger taste like?

    Correct Answer
    D. What does that hamburger taste like?
    Explanation
    The correct form is "What does that hamburger taste like?" This is because when asking about the taste of something, we use the auxiliary verb "does" to form the question in the present tense. The verb "taste" is in its base form without the "-s" ending because it follows the auxiliary verb "does."

      Is looking

    • D.

      Look

    Correct Answer
    A. Looks
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "looks". This is because the verb "look" is in the present simple tense and agrees with the subject "she". In the present simple tense, the third person singular form of the verb is formed by adding "-s" to the base form of the verb. Therefore, "looks" is the correct form in this sentence.

      Do you having a good time?

    Correct Answer
    C. Are you having a good time?
    Explanation
    The correct form is "Are you having a good time?" This is because when asking about someone's current experience or state, we use the present continuous tense ("are you having") instead of the simple present tense ("have you"). Additionally, the verb "having" is used instead of "have" because it is the correct form for expressing the action of experiencing or enjoying something.

      Thinks

    Correct Answer
    B. Think
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "think" because the subject "students" is plural, so the verb should also be in its plural form. In this case, "think" is the correct present tense form of the verb "to think" for the subject "students".
