    I think I underlined the verbs right, but I am so insecure about the forms or tenses used, I'm not sure what they mean. But any help will help.

    With due respect,
    'never' in a) is not a verb, nor is 'already' in c). Wrong words (not verbs) are underlined in d), g), h), i) and g). By contrast, you've missed verbs in b), c), d), f) and i).

    Please see my corrections above. Always capitalise the word "I" (first person singular) and remember to end every sentence with a single, appropriate punctuation mark.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
