    #1. "is coming" is the verb (present progressive tense)
    #4. "has been" is the verb (present perfect tense)

    1. IS is not a linking verb in this sentence. It's a helping verb in the verb phrase.

    2. BEAUTIFUL is an adjective and not part of a verb phrase. IS is a linking verb here.

    3. Right.

    4 and 5. These are both wrong. Can you correct them?

    6. Right.

    hmm..

    verb phrase = is coming

    2. The weather was beautiful this past weekend.

    4. He has been sick all this week.

    5. We were not happy about our team's loss.
    linking = were
