#1, #4, and #5 are plagiarized. (I did not bother checking the other ones.)

You apparently copied them directly from other sites that come up near the top of a Google search.

DO NOT PLAGIARIZE. When you take part in Vocab Practice, compose YOUR OWN sample sentences. That's the say to learn, and that's the say to earn.

Getting upvotes is the hottest news of steemit what you can heard from every steemitian. And u gives a opportunity to earn upvotes.. it's too helpful and motivating..

One question I have if you can help;

When you is singular what helping verb should be used? were or was

You(one person) were/was going on the road.

·

Because one cannot say " you is" "were" in case of past actions and "are" present action are used after "you".

·

You takes "were." For both singular and plural 'you.'

·
·

I know the same but now a days i am watching people going with singular helping verb when they are talking about single person.
