User: Which one of the following statements is true for the base forms of verbs? A. Add "to" to the base form to create an adjective. B. Do not use a base form with plural subjects. C. When the subject of a sentence is singular, add "–s" to the base form. D. Add "–ed" to irregular base forms to form the past participle.

Weegy: None of them are true. Let's compare with the verb to work (regular verb) A.Do not use a base form with plural subjects The girls (plural subject) work hard every day. => you must use the base form so the statement is incorrect. B. [ Add " ed" to irregular base forms to form the past participle. Irregular base forms are irregular because you cannot add -ed to them. E.g. to buy is irregular; I bought this dress yesterday => so the statement is incorrect. C. Add "to" to the base form to create an adjective To make an adjective with the base form, you add -ed or -ing. To bore = bored, boring To interest = interested, interesting So this statement is incorrect as well. D. When the subject of a sentence is singular, add " s" to the base form. I (singular subject) work hard every day. = base verb doesn't need s therefore this statement is incorrect. However, add "-s" to the base verb when the subject of a sentence is third person (he/she/it) He works. She works. It works. ]
