    1)Mail travels overseas on airplanes
    action travels correct

    2)Mail also can go overseas by boats
    action go almost; "can" is the helping verb used with "go" here

    3)Boats are slower but less expensive
    linking slower Can you slower? No. So it's not a verb! In this sentence, the verb is "are" -- a linking verb.

    4)Most people send their mail overseas by airplane
    action send correct

    5)Boats might take weeks for the trip across the ocean
    linking take almost; "take" is the verb, but it's not a linking verb; there's a helping verb here. Do you see it?

    6)Boats were once the only form of transportation.
    action transportation WAY off!

    7)The post office can use truck,trains,and planes to move mail
    action move incorrect

    8)In the past, horses have carried mail across the country
    action carried almost correct; what's the helping verb being used with "carried"?
