    WILL. They're those boring-ass verbs that don't really do shit, like "am, is, are, was and were, being, been, will," etc.

    Past tense! The suffix "ed" shows it's in past tense, like "People who FAILED this quiz suck at grammar."

    "Ing" means that the verb is an action or process. Cool.

    "Takes." "Each" requires a singular verb — "takes."

    "Is." "Everyone" requires a plural verb, like "If everyone in third grade is able to answer these, so should you."

  6. <br>"Think big." What's the subject of this sentence?

    It's "you," since this is a command, like "Stop talking."

  7. <br>Should there be a comma?<br>&nbsp;"I am tall and you are short."&nbsp;

    No comma needed.

    After "tall." These are two independent clauses separated by the conjunction "and," so the comma goes before "and" aka after tall.

    The predicate tells you what the subject does or is, and I respect that.

    "Well." You should know this because of those annoying people who always correct people who say "good."

    "Mice." Irregular plural nouns are nouns like "mice" and "oxen" that don't just become plural by adding an "s." They have to work for it.
