    so ms sue can u help me

  • ENGLISH - ,

    Terria, you'll probably need to type the answers here, since copying and pasting isn't working.

    After you post YOUR answers, try to figure out WHY you chose each of them. We'll be glad to help you from there.

    I'll start you off with the first answer and rationale.

    1A.Did you know a famous animal-rights activist has criticized horseracing because of the dangers involved?
    Rationale: The subject, activist, is singular and needs the singular verb has.

  • ENGLISH - ,

    You can copy and paste the correct sentences from above and then explain why you chose that sentence.

  • ENGLISH - ,

    how would i know what rule go for what when i explain

  • ENGLISH - ,

    Your assignment includes the kind of error you're looking for.

    For instance, for question 2, you know you're looking for a problem with subject-verb agreement. Question 3 has a problem with an irregular or regular verb.

  • ENGLISH - ,

    vitamins are plural so u need a plural verb...is dat right

  • ENGLISH - ,

    Yes. Vitamins are plural, so the plural verb is needed.

  • ENGLISH - ,

    #5-a
    took is in the present tense

  • ENGLISH - ,

    No. Took is the past tense of the verb "take."

    But this sentence has a helping verb, has, so you need the past participle of "take."

    Go back and study your list of verb tenses. What is the past participle of "take?"

  • ENGLISH - correction - ,

    In # 5, the helping verb is have. You still need the past participle of "take."

    Consider these examples.

    I take out the garbage almost every day. (present)

    Yesterday I took out the garbage after work. (past)

    I have taken out the garbage many times.(past participle)
