    What's the difference? Help me please.

    Hye,
    I have some trouble with the word 'work' and 'works'.
    I don't know when to use 'work' or 'works'.

    What's the difference anyway?
    Here:1. " I bought the lithium batteries and it work."
    2. " I bought the lithium battery and it works.

    Can someone correct my sentences and tell me what's wrong.

    Thank you,

    singular - works
    plural - work

    Thank you,

    There's nothing at all special about the verb "work". You will have the same trouble with all regular verbs unless you learn the regular conjugation of the present tense - which is not hard at all.

    I work
    You work (singular)
    He/She/It works
    We work
    You work (plural)
    They work


    It doesn't get any easier!
