Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Most -ER verbs are regular.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Most -ER verbs follow a regular pattern in their conjugation. This means that they have predictable endings and do not undergo significant changes in their stem. Regular verbs in French typically end in -ER, and they form their present tense conjugations by removing the -ER ending and adding specific endings based on the subject pronoun. Therefore, it is correct to say that most -ER verbs are regular.

  • 2. 

    Regular verbs do not follow a pattern.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Regular verbs actually do follow a pattern. In English grammar, regular verbs form their past tense and past participle by adding "-ed" to the base form of the verb. For example, the base form "walk" becomes "walked" in the past tense and past participle. This pattern holds true for most regular verbs in English. Therefore, the correct answer is False, as regular verbs do follow a pattern.
