  1. Yes, Tom tricked Aunt Polly by telling her to turn around -- and then he ran away.

    Hooky means being absent from school without permission.

    Obleeged means "obliged" or had to do something.

  2. What is the action verb and linking verb in the sentence:
    The day was warm and sunny.
