    A. She' s having a glass of water.
    D. She has read that book 3 times.
    E. They smell the roses when they're in the garden.
    Explanation
    The correct answer choices are "She's having a glass of water," "She has read that book 3 times," and "They smell the roses when they're in the garden." These sentences contain dynamic verbs, which are verbs that describe actions or processes that can be physically observed or felt. In the first sentence, "having" is a dynamic verb because it describes the action of drinking. In the second sentence, "has read" is a dynamic verb because it describes the action of reading. In the third sentence, "smell" is a dynamic verb because it describes the action of perceiving the scent of roses.

      I was watching T.V.

    • B.

      My family was sitting down with me

    • C.

    • D.

      I definitely was loving the show

    Correct Answer
    D. I definitely was loving the show

    Is the sentence using the verb in its DYNAMIC or STATIVE form How do you feel when you're on a holiday?

    • A.

      Dynamic

    • B.

      Stative

    Correct Answer
    A. Dynamic
    Explanation
    The sentence "How do you feel when you're on a holiday?" is using the verb "feel" in its dynamic form. This is because the verb "feel" is describing an action or a temporary state that can change over time. In this sentence, it is asking about the emotions or sensations experienced while on a holiday, which can vary from person to person and from one holiday to another.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Is the sentence using the verb in its DYNAMIC or STATIVE form I feel you should go on a holiday.

    • A.

      Stative

    • B.

      Dynamic

    Correct Answer
    A. Stative
    Explanation
    The sentence "I feel you should go on a holiday" is using the verb "feel" in its stative form. In this context, "feel" is expressing a state of emotion or belief rather than an action. It indicates the speaker's opinion or suggestion rather than an ongoing or dynamic action.
