Subject Verb Agreement Test Class 10

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tom Moore @ 3:43 PM

The fundamental rule of subject-verb concord is that a singular subject (the doer of an action spoken of in the sentence) always adopts a singular verb (the action performed in the sentence), while a plural subject always adopts a plural verb. Example: 15. Mathematics (is, are) John`s favorite subject, while Civics (are) Andreas the favorite subject. Sentence 2 is false because the verb “were” is wrongly agreed with the name “apples” near it. It`s a proximity error. When we build a sentence, verb and subject must correspond in number and in person. Thus, if the subject is singular number, the first person, the verb must be singular number. If the subject has the plural number, the third person, the verb must be plural number. Ask 9. Fill the drafts with the correct form of verb: (a) A thousand rupees ……….

A lot for me. (b) If I……………… A bird, I`d fly. (c) Each of the girls………………. a prize. (d) Four weeks………………. A good holiday. (e) My father………………… Not like reading comics. (f) It goes as if it……………… blade.

Answer: a) is (b) (c) (e) is (f) if a verb is to match its number and Person.In other words, the verb of a sentence corresponds to the number and person of the subject of that sentence. Sewing errors Frequent the `verb` is made to suit in numbers with a standard near it instead of its real subject. It`s a mistake. This common error is called a `proximity error`. It must be avoided. The verb must correspond to its true subject. 10. Plurielnames: The title of a book, the name of a house or hotel in the plural adopts a singular verb: 7. The introductory verb “there`:D “as” must match the actual subject that follows the introduction. If the subject is singular, then a singular verb will follow.

If the actual subject is plural, “da” will be followed by a plural verb: semi-modal verbs – Use semi-modal verbs are: need, dare, ought, used. They are verbs that have some of the properties of lexical verbs and some of the signs of modal verbs. Examples: Mathematics – my favorite subject when I was in high school. You can master in the English grammar of different classes through our articles such as tenses, clauses, prepositions, history writing, Unseen Passage, notice writing, etc. 20. A collective noun such as the jury, committee, family, etc. takes a singular verb when it is considered an entity. But if they are considered individuals, they take a plural verb: (ii) The second person takes the singular or plural a singular verb: 12.
