Answers

Liking verbs are verbs that connect with the subject and give some information about it. Example: am, is, appears, look, seem, taste, etc...

Linking verbs don't express action. But, as usual, we have the famous exceptions. Some verbs can be action verbs or linking verbs, example: 

grow, look, prove, remain, smell, sound, taste, turn, stay, get, appear, feel

So, answering you, the answer is the second sentence.

tharas mother is lawyer is the answer

The sentence that contains an action verb is A. "My sister lost her computer yesterday", while the sentence that contains a linking verb is B. "Her shoes look really comfortable".

Explanation: An action verb is a verb that indicates a physical or mental action. Moreover, it expresses the type of action that the subject is carrying out. The only sentence that contains an action verb is A. "My sister lost her computer yesterday" since "lost" is expressing an action performed by "my sister". On the other hand, linking verbs are verbs that connect the subject to another element that provides additional information about this subject. In that way, a linking verb does not express an action. The only sentence that includes a linking verb is B. "Her shoes look very comfortable" since "look" is only establishing a relationship between the subject "her shoes" and "very comfortable".

The correct answer is B, as the verb to be (in this case, "is") acts as a linking verb in the sentence.

The linking verb is a type of verb (to be) that some languages possess to construct the so-called nominal preaching of the subject of a sentence: the subject joins with this verb a compulsory complement called attribute that usually determines some property, state or equivalence thereof, for example.

The correct answer is B. Pahom is unhappy

Explanation:

A linking verb is a type of verb that connects the subject and the predicate, different to other verbs they do not describe a specific or explicit action carried out by the subject, but the meaning of the verb is provided by the relationship established between the subject and the predicate, linking verbs include verbs such as feel, seem, be, taste, resemble among others. In the case of "Pahom is unhappy" the verb is "is" which is a form of verb to be that is classified as a linking verb, this can be explained as there is not a direct action but a link (is) between the subject (Pahom) and the Predicate (unhappy), this linking verb is the one that determines the meaning and thus, if it is linking a different subject and predicate the meaning changes. In this way, the sentence "Pahom is unhappy" is the one containing a linking verb (verb to be) as the verb just links the different parts of a sentence, but does not express a direct action.

A linking verb is a word that links a noun with an adjective so in this case, B. Sarah seemed nervous at first. would be the answer because "Sarah" seemed "Nervous". Hope this helps!! 🙂
