    Re: Can u find the verbs in this sentence?

    I think the verb should be "line",and it means the vehicles are put in line to the dock of port for exportation.

    Re: Can u find the verbs in this sentence?

    The problem with this type of language exercise is its vagueness: while there are 3 identifiable verb-forms (also termed 'verbals' by grammarians) in the sentence - manufactured, line, awaiting, there is only one finite verb (that which is frequently meant by instructions to find 'verbs') - line.

    You would perhaps be best advised to seek some clarification from your teacher as to precisely what information is required!
