    H. Fall, fell, fallen
    Explanation
    The verbs "know, knew, known," "push, pushed, pushed," "take, took, taken," "teach, taught, taught," and "fall, fell, fallen" are all correct forms. These verbs follow the regular pattern of adding -ed to form the past tense and using the past participle form with the auxiliary verb "have" to form the present perfect tense. The verbs "do, did, don't" and "cry, cryd, cryed" are incorrect because they do not follow the regular pattern of verb conjugation. The verb "tell, told, tellen" is incorrect because "tellen" is not a valid past participle form. The verb "play, plaied, plaied" is incorrect because the correct past tense form is "played."

    Explanation
    The given answer includes the verbs "be, send, meet, see, tell" which are irregular verbs. These verbs do not follow the regular pattern of adding -ed to form the past tense. Instead, they have their own unique forms. For example, the past tense of "be" is "was" or "were", the past tense of "send" is "sent", the past tense of "meet" is "met", the past tense of "see" is "saw", and the past tense of "tell" is "told". Therefore, these verbs are irregular.

    • D.

      Bigger

    Correct Answer
    A. Matter
    Explanation
    The word "matter" is not an adjective. It is a noun that refers to a physical substance or material. Adjectives are words that describe or modify nouns, but "matter" does not perform this function. Instead, it is the subject of description or modification by an adjective. Therefore, "matter" does not fit the category of an adjective.
