    This is part of my exercise on confusing verbs Lie - Lay. Anyone can tell me if I did them right?
    Underline the uncorrect verb form enclosed in brackets. Indicate whether the sentence requires the verb Lie or Lay? My answers are on the right in bold.

    1. The injured man has (laid, lain) unconscious all day. Lie
    2. We (lay, laid) our wraps on the bench. Lay
    3. Have you been (laying, lying) down? Lie
    4. As I (lie, lay ) here, i can see the hilltops. Lie
