- For Teachers
My student challenged me to come up with a complete sentence that has only one verb and that verb would end in -ing. HELP! Has any one else heard of this challenge or have the answer.
Learning is effective.
It's a sentence that contains only one verb which ends in an "-ing".
However, this would be way too easy...
A sentence that has only one WORD (does not matter if it's a verb or whatever) can't exist in my opinion...
bring, cling, ring
Damn I am blind! And with laclustre power of imagination.
I tried bring but acording to the rules I would have to use bringing. I am stumped. My next thought was "Thanks for trying".
Perhaps it was a trick question. They weren't specifying that it has to be the the -ing form/participle of a verb, but just a verb that ends in -ing, so that bring, cling, etc. meet the rules.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
