Which one of the following sentences is grammatically correct?

A. I really need to lay down.
B. Sit it down over there by the window.
C. I thought it would be best if I were to rise the curtain.
D. The men came today to lay the carpet in the living room.


Let's take B and C first.

Sit doesn't take an object. Example: I will sit and relax a moment.

Rise doesn't take an object. Example: The sun will rise in a few minutes.

Now -- for the tricky verbs -- lay and lie.

Lay means to put and takes an object. Example: Please lay the spoon next to the knife.

Lie means to recline. Example: I wanted to lie in bed until noon.

As you can see, D. is the correct answer.
