    Talking meaning

    hi there,


    what are the differences between these sentences?


    1.Supermarket sells vegetables.
    2.Supermarket got sells vegetables.
    3.Supermarket has sold vegetables.

    Warmest Regards,


    -kahhong

    Re: meaning

    2 is wrong. 1 would be OK if you said 'a supermareket' or 'supermarkets'. It is simply describing one of the products you can buy there. The thirs would onlt work in a certain context- the supermarket has sold a lot of vegetables this week, for example.
