Here are the basic rules of the verb-subject agreement. If you associate two names with either or not/or not, the verb must match the name that follows or still goes. Question 1. Choose the correct form of the verb that matches the theme. Have and have the verbs and have been used to say what people own or possess. They are also used to talk about things that people do or receive, such as diseases. These words are the simple form of the present of the verb to have. Principle: A singular subject (she, Amit, car) takes a singular verb (is, goes, shines), while a plural subject takes a plural verb. Example: Question 8. (i) Furniture in the classroom was new (ii) Furniture in the classroom is new (iii) Furniture in the classroom is new (iv) Furniture in the classroom is/was new Rule 7: Use a singular verb with distances, periods, sums of money, etc., if considered a unit. Examples Present Tense A verb must correspond in number and in person to its subject.
(a) If the subject is third, no one is singular, most English verbs end in -s or -it, but there are no -s or -it in plural thirds. He goes to school. You go to school. Sita goes to school. Sita and Rama go to school. They`re eating a mango. Ram eats a mango. If the subject is a pronoun, the verb must also personally agree. English pronouns fall into three categories: first person, second person and third person.
Explanation: `The poet and the singer` suggests the singular; That`s why „is“ is right. (If „the“ is also used before the singer – the poet and the singer – then the theme becomes plural – otherwise the word poet and singer means the same person – Swanand Kirkire.) Add the correct form of the contemporary form of verbs in parentheses in the following sentences: 1. The new planes ……. Very quickly. (Mouches) 2. The river ….. It`s good in the summer. (see) 3.
Mangoes …. Freshness. (see) 4. A friend of mine…. In the same school as me. I read it. 5. The owners of this factory …. very rich and ….. in big houses. (be, live) 6.
Some women …. All aboard….. She`s sick. (Aversion, do) 7. Boys ….. every day at school. (go) 8. It ……. to see pictures. (how) 9. I…..
like him…….. That`s right. (Miracles, do) 10. You….. what………….. This is me. (Knowledge, trouble) Rule 1: A theme will be in front of a sentence beginning with. It is a key rule for understanding the subjects. The word is the culprit in many, perhaps most, subject-verb-error. Rule 5b: Parentheses are not part of the subject. Example: 9. Seema and Nita both went to school.
(Use a pluralistic verb after both… and..) Rule 2: two distinct topics that are linked by or, either, or by a single verb. Examples Rule 4: Usually use a plural adverb with two or more themes when they are adorned and connected. Example: Question 9. (i) Mathematics is an interesting subject (ii) mathematics has been an interesting subject (iii) mathematics is an interesting subject (iv) mathematics is/was an interesting subject (ii) can, can and should be, and auxiliaries are and will not be „s“ on the singular or plural. What the Lord will ask, the servant will do. The servants will do what they ask. If `will is a full verb that means desire, it follows the rule for most other verbs and accepts `-s`-if the subject is a singular third person. No matter what God wants, man cannot change. The verbs that end with „y“ and have a consonant before that `y` are added to the `y` in T and `-`if the subject is a singular third person.
