Copy the paragraph below into the textbox. Fill in the blanks with a verb that logically fits into the sentences. Make sure the verbs agree with their subjects in tense, form, and number. Also, check to be sure your verb choice fits logically within the sentence.

Please note there is more than one logical verb that can fit into each sentence, so your choices may not match with the AGG response. Compare your responses to the ones provided and determine if one is more effective. One way to do that is to check that the verbs you chose match the AGG response in terms of agreement (for example, both 3rd person singular verbs) and logically fitting the sentence.

You must respond to the question before the AGG response will be displayed. After you submit your response, you will see the AGG response, but you won’t be able to see your response until the end. After the quiz, you will be able to review the summary of responses including the original paragraph, your own response and the AGG response. This quiz has 1 question.

Example: Beach Cruisers ___ similar to any other bike on campus.

Revision: Beach Cruisers are similar to any other bike on campus.
