In the sentence "these pebbles are like hundreds of small wheels." is like an verb if so action or linking?
No. The verb in this sentence is not "like." It's used as an preposition here.
Please look again to find the linking verb.
The verb is 'are'. Is there another verb? No. It would be a linking verb. *Remember that a helping verb helps another verb. And: A linking verb stands by itself.
'Like' in the sentence is not a verb.
so is are the verb and it's linking right? and pebbles is the subject
