  1. This sentence does not have a compound verb. Each of those verbs has a different subject, making this a compound SENTENCE.

    Lacrosse looks

    it is

  2. So what you mean is that there are no compound words in this sentence? And I should choose Lacrosse and looks?

  5. None of them. This question has a mistake.

    Please ask your teacher about this question. Point out that a compound verb must have only one subject. Yet each verb in this sentence has a different subject.
