Having trouble on this. On the sentence below you are supposed to write the correct form of the verb either lay or lie. Not sure which it would be. "Yesterday afternoon he ___________ the horn on the table.

  • Language Arts -

    Lie and lay are tough.

    Since the action happened yesterday, you need the past tense of lay (to put).

    he LAID the horn . . .
