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.
Tuesday, December 8, 2009 at 7:58pm by Anya

I suppose you could say that. But I don't see a linking verb as such. I see "were" being used as an auxiliary verb (helping verb) with the main verb "to fascinate" -- the helping verb and the -ing ending make the verb in the past tense, passive mood.

Yes, "b" is correct. The verb in that place cannot be in main verb form (a, c, or d) because "used" is the main verb of the sentence. This verb form needs to be a participle (verbal adjective) in order to modify the subject, "Romans."

Anonymous is correct. The second one is not right. It puts the verb in the past tense and is plural. With the construction of "either . . . or" you need a singular verb. Since "I" is closer to the verb, "am" is the correct verb.

Those are the infinitives of verbs. llevar = to carry, etc. The verb ending of the infinitives is -ar in each case. The verb ending that actually gets used in a sentence depends upon the tense and the subject of the verb. That is what verb conjugation is all about.
