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. Fill in the blanks with a verb form that matches the object. If two subjects express an idea together, the verb will be in the singular. Example: Verbs have three main parts. These are present, past and past participations. For regular verbs, the form of the past tense is formed by adding ed to the presensence; and the past participation is formed using the verb of the past tense with an auxiliary verb like. Example: It should be noted that the article is only used once when both names relate to the same person. If reference was made to different people, the article would be used before each noun and the verb would be plural.
Example: If the subject of the verb is a relative pronoun, care must be taken to ensure that the verb in number and person corresponds to the precursor of the parent. Example: if a plural noun is between a singular subject and its verb, the verb used is singular. 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. Insert is`or are` in the following sentences: 1. There ……. Two boys who are there.

is 10. if the subjects related by `or`, `nor` are different, the verb must be plural and the plural subject must be placed next to the verb. Example: Two or more singular subjects that are connected by “or”, “or”, “ni”, “ni” or “ni” accept a verb in the singular. It should be noted, however, that if one thinks of the individuals who make up the collective noun, it can take a plural verb. . . .
