    'given' after noun

    Hello, Teachers.

    Is the following sentence grammatical?
    Fill in each of the blanks with the proper form of the verb given.

    If it is correct, why the writer put the word given after the word verb?
    Is there any difference between the verb given and the given verb?

    Thanks in advance.

    1. Fill in each of the blanks with the proper form of the verb given.
    2. Fill in each of the blanks with the proper form of the given verb.

    Both sentences are correct but #1 sounds better.
    In 'verb given' - emphasis is on 'verb' , which is the focus on the question.
