the mother seal looks fat and scary. in this sentence is the verb used as a linking verb or an action verb

  • English -

    The verb is "looks."

    Do the words after the verb describe the subject? Or do the words after the verb serve as a direct object?

    If they describe the subject, "looks" is a linking verb.

    If they serve as a direct object, "looks" is an action verb. Another way to look at this is to ask yourself if anyone or anything is actively looking at something?
