    It is quite a coincidence to see this here after what I recently posted on the subject. It makes me wonder where you got the idea from.

    :wink:

    Guys, it's really incredible. I've just printed out the full list of Irregular Verbs. The total quantity is 281. Is that all? Or maybe there some more of them? It's really incredible! So many!
    Though I ticked "be", still I'm not confident that it's correct as I don't really know.

    Forms of "can": can, could
    Forms of "do": do, did, does
    Forms of "be": be, is, are, am, was, were (check) :D

    :D You wrote, "Though I ticked 'be', still I'm not confident that it's correct as I don't really know", and so I listed the verb forms for you to see that you were correct in picking "be". If you count the forms for can, do, and be, you'll see that "be" has way more variants than can and do. You can be confident now in your choice of "be". You are correct. :D

    Could you, pls, explain me one thing. In the list of irregular verbs, there are two forms for Past Simple & Partciple 1 for some of the verbs. What for these two forms are given & how to know which one to use? Because sometimes these two forms are absolutely differrent. :wink:
