rule of making nouns and adjective
i would like to know is there any method to make or formation of noun and adjective from a verb and same opposit if it.plss help me.
I am not sure I understand the question. Certainly, words commonly thought of as nouns are sometimes used as adjectives.
There are many ways, so there are no simple rules:
No change - import (verb and noun, though the pronunciation changes)
Add suffix- know- knoledge-knowledgeable.
Usage is king here. To use Tdol's example, if I import something that makes it an import. Example:
- A: I like this cigar.
B: It's a Cuban import.
If I know (verb) something that means I have knowledge (noun) of it. A person who has a lot of knowledge (noun) may be regarded as knowledgeable (adjective).
Another example is sight. It can be something you see (noun), something you do (verb), and, as sighted it can be an adjective.
How am I doing?

SUPOSE IF WE KNOW A VERB LIKE APPLY AND WE HAVE TO MAKE THE NOUN OF IT WHICH RULE WE CAN APPLY HERE.
The noun form of apply is application. As far as I know, there is no hard and fast rule for making a verb into a noun.
Sometimes the noun form of a word is the same as the verb form. Other times it is not.
Please don't post using all caps.
I agree with Ron- there are many different ways of forming nouns from verbs:
As youcan see, two words that look fairly similar have different nouns. However, there are patterns. For someof the rules, consult a book like Practical Englsih Usage, which lays out some of them.
