In the sentence "these pebbles are like hundreds of small wheels." is like an verb if so action or linking?

  • English -

    No. The verb in this sentence is not "like." It's used as an preposition here.

    Please look again to find the linking verb.

  • english -

    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.

  • english -

    so is are the verb and it's linking right? and pebbles is the subject

  • english -

    Correct.
