Okay got that one..

What about The cab driver was driving extremely fast down the street. The very phrase is was driving. Was is a linking verb and driving an action. Is it a linking verb or an action verb? Directions say to underline the verb phrase and indicate action or linking.

These are really confusing me. Lots of linking verbs with an action verb...

  1. The main verb is driving. In this sentence, "was" is a helping or auxiliary verb.
