Hello

I'm too an English learner. Although MAX have already answered, let me try to answer.

[1] Most of the students Emotion: love mathematics.
[2] There (are) (fewer) people around here.
[3] I don't know what (is/are) on their minds.
(It will depend on whether 'I' feels what is on each one's mind is different or not).
[4] There (are) a large number of students studying literature in our class.
[5] She (fell/fell down) from the chair.
(If 'she' is a baby, she could fall down from the chair.
[6] He (has gotten/has got) good results since young.
(I think both of them are OK, though I personally like "got").
[7] There (are) many students who (love/loves) English.

Compared with MAX's answers, my answers are different in [4] and [5].
Please wait until our teachers give you decisive answers.

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
I'm a native English speaker, but this doesn't mean I'm infallible:
I would say that in 4 and 5 either could be correct, certainly either would seem natural in spoken English. Number 6 doesn't seem grammatically correct to begin with, you'd need to have "since he was young", and I would go for 'gotten', though I may be wrong.
Hello Meneldil

Thank you for your comment. I learned a lot from you.

Thanks everybody. I now have a clearer picture on the use of verbs for the sentences. These sentences were constructed by me, so I think there may be grammatical errors somewhere in them. Just wanted to know which is the correct verb form to use in each of the cases.Emotion: smile
