    Every other day, Paul _______ the church.

    • A.

      Visit

    • B.

      Visited

    • C.

      Visits

    • D.

      Visiting

    Correct Answer
    C. Visits
    Explanation
    The verb “visits” is used in the sentence “Every other day, Paul visits the church” because it’s in the simple present tense. The simple present tense is used to describe habits, unchanging situations, general truths, and fixed arrangements. In this case, Paul’s habit of visiting the church every other day is being described.
    The structure of a simple present tense sentence is: subject + base form of the verb (or verb+s/es for third person singular subjects). Here, “Paul” is the subject and “visits” is the base form of the verb “visit” with an “s” added because Paul is a third person singular subject. Therefore, “Every other day, Paul visits the church” is a correct sentence in the simple present tense.

      Liking
