Singular subject--he, she, it (pronouns)--should be substituted with singular nouns.
most of the time your noun will be on the left side of the verb. This helps you identify the subject in the sentence. But it varies.
Plurals forms occurs when you are talking about more than one subject.
child (singular) and children (plural)
Walk (present) can be changed to walked (past)
But not all verbs are as easy to spot…
You have to change the whole word
saw (past) and see (present)
They are ir regular because they do not take an “ed” ending in the past tense, as regular verbs do.
Notice that there are two different verb tenses in this sentence (present and past), but that it is an accurate time frame for both actions.
In this case two different verb tenses cause confusion.
