English & Verbs

posted by Abbey

Verbs have totally escaped my mind at the moment. I need help with this question.

Which of the following sentences contaions the same sentence structure as "She opened her book"

1. George seemed pleased
2. Tim strummed his guitar
3. Sue is a superb athlete
4. Grace wrote in her diary

I was thinking it's B. Am I correct?


Thank you for using the Jiskha Homwework Help Forum. If you look closely at the basic sentence "She opened her book." you will see the past tense of a verb with a direct object. #2 is the same structure.
