  • English -

    Ooops! You forgot to tell what YOU THINK the answers are.

  • English -

  • English -

    Allyson is incorrect. What does Sarah think?

  • English -

    It has something to do with gerunds. but im sure how it fits.

    you normally change the subject by adding an 's.

  • English -

    Gerunds are verb forms ending in -ing.

    Which is the gerund in that sentence? Is it serving as a noun or adjective or what?

  • English -

    smoking

  • English -

    Yes, and it's serving as a noun because that's what gerunds do!

    Would you say, "I found you coat"? Why or why not? ("coat" is the noun here)

  • English -

    i have found your coat. would you say we appreciate you not having smoked near the entrance?

  • English -

    o i read it wrong. so it would be your

  • English -

    No.

    You put "your" (possessive form) in front of the noun "coat" -- so what do you need to do in your sentence??

  • English -

    Yes!!! Good for you!

  • English -

    thank you

  • English -

    You're welcome.

    Dealing with gerunds is not easy, I know.
