Underline the three adjectives in each sentence. Count possessive

alphabetical order. The first sentence has been done for you.

17. Jim and Zelda never suspected the secret crush that Alvin had on their

18. Anita enjoyed watching old movies while eating our toasted olives.
III Verbs Can Become Adjectives
Words that are normally verbs can often be used as adjectives. If a word
modifies a noun or pronoun, it is an adjective, even if that word is usually
associated with a different part of speech.
Sometimes the present participle (verb plus ing) form of a verb becomes an
adjective:
A rolling stone gathers no moss.
Sometimes the past participle form of a verb becomes an adjective:
I will accept a written apology.
Such adjectives are sometimes called participle adjectives.
Each sentence may contain any number of verbs and adjectives, but only
one word will be a participle adjective. Underline that word. Write the
main verb it comes from after the sentence. The first two have been done
for you.
19. Many kind carpenters offered to repair the broken porch. break
20. Never kiss a smiling crocodile. smile
