The correct answer to the question is the action Verb
Action Verb is a type of verb that describes a physical or mental action. An action verb can also be defined as a word that expresses action and tells what the subject of a sentence does. Examples of action verbs are: swim, jump, read, think, believe, and love, and so on.

Non-action verbs are also known as linking verbs. They help connect a verb to a subject and object in a sentence. These verbs do not represent an action, but they represent a state of being. Examples are: is, were, am, are has, have, be, and so much more.

The correct answer to this question is an action verb. They are also known as dynamic verbs. It is used to describe what a subject of the sentence is doing or what they have done in the past. Used in the English language, there are several examples of action verbs.

A great way to determine whether a verb is an action verb is to read the sentence aloud and see if the verb used is something that can be physically or mentally do. If so, it is an action verb. If it is something that they can instead feel or be, it is a non-action verb.

The answer to this is an action verb. The verb is something that is used in order to describe what a person or an object is doing.

For example, the subject is reading. Reading is going to be the verb here and it perfectly describes what the subject’s activity is. There are other types of verbs that are also used in different ways.

The linking verb is the type of verb that will connect the subject to an adjective or a noun. The helping verb is another verb that can be used before the action or the linking verb in order to provide the additional information needed to make the sentence easily understood.
