A verb is a word that either describes an action or an event (what someone or something does) or else helps to describe a state or a condition (what someone or something is or is like).
- It rained all day yesterday.
- The girl smiled at him.
- Her father owns the local newspaper.

- The door opened.
- If only we had more time!
- We arrive in Singapore at nine o’clock at night.
- Her mother Is a nurse.
- Be sensible!
- She seems honest.

It is, of course, quite possible to have two or more verbs in a sentence:
- I hope she returned the book to you in good condition.
- I suspect that he knew the reason for the delay.
- I think that is the tool we need for this job.
- I hope to return to Egypt next year.
- They wanted to know the reason for the delay.
- I saw her put that ring in her pocket.
