I did the above worksheet for my university students in an English for Academic Purpose (EAP) program. Students can perform the following exercises. Choose the correct form of the verb that matches the theme. In English, if the subject of a verb is the singular of the third person (he/she/Es), then the verb has an `s` at the end. Here`s an example with the verb like: The phrases in my class and about art and craft are prepositional phrases that identify the class and its object. Similarly, the theme of the bird in the trees. It`s one thing, so the verb “was” won`t `were`. Again, the theme is “The Man (who bought a hundred houses)”. To find the subject, just look at the verb and ask yourself (what) is rich? The answer is that man (not houses) is rich.
The nomun head of the phrase is “The Fuhrer.” The prepositional expression “student” changes the subject. The complete subject is the head of the students. Is the subject singular or plural? It is singular (one), and the third person (the leader – she/he). Be sure to ignore the names in the prepositional sentences, and match the main verb in the number to the grammatical subject of the sentence. If and refers to the same person, the subject is singular. 1. The word closest to the verb is not always the subject. This is the rule for all verbs (jump/walk/read/etc). 15. Mathematics (is, are) John`s favorite subject, while Civics (is) Andreas the preferred subject. A sentence that has a grammatical subject with speech and that is plural when it refers to more than one thing. The subject-verb agreement is one of the first things you learn in English class: 3.
Each person /Person/Person/Person/etc. are individual subjects. These words always take the plural form of the verb: In this English lesson, you will learn some more advanced cases of subject-verb tuning that confuse many learners. If the subject of a sentence (z.B. “I”) does not correspond to the verb (z.B. “are”), we say that the subject and the verb do not match. In other words, you have a subject-verb chord error (SVA), which is a common mistake for English learners. The subject and verb chord can become quite difficult if there are prepositionals or adverbs after the grammatical object of a sentence. Look at each sentence and think about the subject/verb chord.
What`s the right answer? These themes are also unique, although they speak of a group of people. I would say that this quiz is so hard for me because I know the right verb to use it. For me, I can answer if it`s “is” ar “are,” “w/s” or “without s.” I have looked at the noun, whether plural or singular, even if it is present or past. I know it`s not easy to identify the word of writing because there are things I didn`t know. These words are irregular plural names (substantial ones that are not made by adding -s) and they take the plural form of the verb: 2.
