Hi, Would you please take a look at this and make it clear?
"Because of the prolonged drought, the animals went hungry."
Which is the right meaning of "go hungy" in the sentence above?
a. be(stay) hungry.
b. become hungy.
c. either (according to the context).

Re: Go hungry
'To go hungry' means 'not to have food at the expected time.'
So in your example, because of the drought, they became hungry, and then they stayed hungry.
