Simple Present Tense Exercise with Answer

Make simple present tense sentences.

In the simple present tense sentence, if the subject is a singular noun or pronoun (he, she, it) then the verb must be added -s/-es. However, if the subject is plural (you, we, they) and also I, then the verb does not need / should not be added -s/-es.

Example:

Her brother listens to music. (The verb ‘listen‘ in this sentence is added -s at the end of the word because the subject is singular ‘Her brother‘.)

His brothers listen to music. (The verb ‘listen‘ in this sentence is not added -s at the end of the word, because the subject is plural ‘Her brothers‘.)
