Question:

Create the gerund for the verb : TO SWIM. Explain how the gerund was created

Jacqueline K.
Answer:

The gerund for the verb to swim is swimming. The verb follows the consonant + vowel + consonant ending pattern with emphasis on the last syllable which means that the final consonant is repeated and the -ing ending is added to form swimming.

Question:

What were the two opposing sides in the French-Indian War and what impact did it have on the United States?

Jacqueline K.
Answer:

The British and French fought in the French and Indian war because of expansion into the Ohio River Valley by the French. The Native Americans fought with the French. This war was significant for the British settlers because despite their victory through aiding the British, they gained little from the war and ended up getting higher taxes which furthered dissention.

Question:

If I had studied for the exam, then I would have passed it. Looking at the above sentence identify the conditional construction and the past perfect verb usage and explain their purpose in the sentence.

Jacqueline K.
Answer:

The usage of an "if, then" is an indication of a conditional phrase, this kind of phrase can be used to identify hypothetical situations where an alternate reality can be examined. The past perfect verbs are "have passed" and "had studied". By placing the had before the past participle of the verb the verb becomes past perfect indicating an action that occurred in the past and is completed.
