Errors with Verbs 34.3 Copy

Focus: Identifying and correcting errors involving verb forms.

(Note: One or two items in this exercise do not focus on word-form errors. These are marked in the answer key with an asterisk.)

Directions: Decide which of the four underlined words or phrases-(A), (B), (C), or (D)-would not be considered correct, and write the letter of the expression in the blank. Then, in the line at the end of the sentence, write a correction for the underlined phrase. The first one is done as an example.
