Hi,

I recently came across a sentence and the SV pairs in that sentence have been puzzling me since. Could someone please me figure out the SV pairs in the below sentence.

[i]The UV radiation emitted by the Sun is carcinogenic and hazardous in ozone-free areas[/i]

According to me 'UV radiation' is the subject and 'emitted' is the verb. But then what is the subject for the verb 'is carcinogenic'?


Thanks !

Hi,

"emitted" is not a verb, it's a past participle modifying radiation. You can think of it as - adjectival in nature, modifying the noun radiation. Here the verb is "is". "Is" is the linking verb, linking the subject with the adjectives "carcinogenic and hazardous".

Hope this helps!

Hi Darth, indeed as sdlife has indicated above, emitted is used as a Past Participle here and not as a verb.

Our book EducationAisle Sentence Correction Nirvana discusses Past Tense Verb Vs Past Participle, its application and examples in significant detail. If someone is interested, PM me your email-id; I can mail the corresponding section.
