    I disagree with you on #1. I agree with you on #s 2, 3, and 5.

    I think #4 isn't a good question because the first three of those verbs are action verbs. The fourth can be action or linking, depending on the context.

    Well for 1, I was going for either A or D, but I went with D.
    4, and action verb would have to include action wouldn't it?

  • Just some LA q's, Ms.Sue please -

    #4 was correct, I got 100%, thanks for your help. :-)
