Ahhh! Some of you out there are confused to what past tense verbs and adjectives ending in -ed are, huh?
Example: I bored or I am bored?
Example: I jumped or I am jumped?
This would more than likely help you right off the back, if it doesn’t, it’s time to dive in a little bit more.
To describe how somebody feels, we use the -ed ending.
Boring, confusing, disappointing, embarrassed, relax, exciting, frightened, interesting, moving, relaxed, surprised, tired
Now, of course the base forms of some of the verbs above are: disappoint, confuse, embarrass, excite, interest, move, relax, surprise.
Rule: if you’re talking about a movie or an inanimate object, use -ing.
- I was _________________(surprised) to hear that they’ve stopped the series.
- It was so __________________(embarrassing) when the present forgot what to say.
- The new MRT is really _________________(confuse). I don’t know which train to get on.
- That film was very ___________(move).
- The teachers were very ________________(disappoint) because the students’ scores didn’t live up to expectations.
