    Default crack

    Hi, teacher,
    I met two sentences, 1\The fire works cracked overhead, how to understand the meaning of this sentence, and how to understand the part of speech of the two words 'works' and 'cracked' here?
    2\ How many clues been found that can help the police find the criminal?
    I felt that there is something wrong with this sentence, should it say how many clues have been found that can help the police find the criminal?

    Thanks
    Happy new year!
    Ian

    1 I think it should be 'fireworks', so it is noun + verb- the fireworks exploded/went off overhead.
    2 Yes, it should.
