    Now linking verb ( The word linking is self explanatory) : A linking verb is a verb that links the subject of the sentence to information about that subject. They do not describe any action.

    A Linking verb is the verb that connects the sentence correct? "Neither humans nor computers (Can Be) used to operate them" Can Be: Linking Verb?

    An auxiliary verb is a verb that adds functional or grammatical meaning to the clause in which it appears...for example I \(\color{blue}{\Huge\text{am}}\) leaving

    hese verbs are also called Helping Verbs, as they ‘help’ the main verb to denote the actions of the subject. They help in making compound tenses of the main verb and also help in making negative statements, questions and passive voice statements.
