(ii) may, must, must and must become and auxiliaries and must not have an “s” in the singular or plural. What the Lord asks, the servant will do. What these gentlemen will ask for is the servants who will do it. If “will” is a complete verb that means desire, it follows the rule for most other verbs and takes “-s” when the subject is the third singular individual. Whatever God wants, there is nothing man can do about it. Verbs that end in `y and sound before this `y the `y` changes to T and `-it is added when the subject is the third person singular. Ram is counting on me. He does his best. He flies a kite. A verb must match in number and person about it.

(a) If the subject is the singular of the third person, most English verbs end on -s or -il, but there is no -s or -il in the plural of the third person. He goes to school. They go to school. Sita goes to school. Sita and Rama go to school. You eat a mango. Ram eats a mango. Exceptions (i) The verb “to be” and its forms are exempt from this rule: he is a friend. I am your friend.

They are friends. Irregular verbs Irregular verbs change completely in the past. Unlike regular verbs, past forms of irregular verbs are not made by adding ed. Example: (d) If the subject is plural, but represents a single figure or a single size, it adopts a singular verb. A hundred kilometers is a long distance. A thousand rupees is not much these days. Dal and Roti are a common food in northern India. A Thousand Miles Under the Sea is a famous novel. If two subjects express an idea together, the verb will be in the singular.

Example: A. Underline the subject (or assembled subject) and then tick the verb that corresponds to it. The first one was made for you. Verb A verb says what does something or that there is something. Examples: A transitive verb requires a direct object to complete its meaning. The meaning of a sentence with a transitive verb is not complete without a direct object. Types of verbs Action messages An action word says what the subject does. (build, laugh, walk, express) or that it exists. (is, are, were, were) Examples: If the subject of the verb is a relative pronoun, care should be taken to ensure that the verb in number and person corresponds to the precursor of the parent. Example: Insert the correct form of verbs in spaces in the following sentences: 1.

A good dictionary ……. A lot. (Costs) 2. These five chairs….. a thousand rupees. (Costs) 3. Ten kilometers ……. a long distance on foot. (Be) 4. Sita ……. Next to my house.
