    In order to make an action verb, you need a subject: the one who is doing the action.

    Okay, so for the word "sound". I would say, "Tell the soldiers to sound the alarm"?

    It could be, although I can't guarantee it. Sound would be one of the action verbs, but the main one would be "tell" the subject being you. A way to make "sound" a definite action verb would be like "The soldiers will sound the alarm."

    Yes. English is very complicated, so if you don't understand, I can't blame you.

    Indeed. Looks can be an action verb, but can also be a linking verb. It provides the connection between the subject and the adjective.

    It's a linking verb, but it's not sound. The sound is the subject, and the adjective is quite annoying. That means that the linking verb is "is."

    You can do it by replacing is with sounds. "That sounds quite annoying."

    Hmm.. I think this one is had. "Have" is more in the present tense, and this sentence must be in the past because of "tasted."

    Either could be right, but can would have a better chance of being the correct answer because "look" is in present tense.
