Just so you know in case you don't, this forum is not meant for doing homework for ESL students. If you have questions about your homework, you can post your questions together with your answers and the teachers will check them for you.

Here's my answer for your first question just to get your warm up.

1. I really need to lay lie down.
1. I really need to lay down. Lay is a transitive verb. The intransitive verb is LIE.

2. I thought it would be best if I were to rise the curtain. Rise is intransitive. The transitive version is RAISE.

3.The men came today to lay the carpet in the living room.

1. Neither my team nor Sandra's team are in the playoffs. Neither takes the singular

2. One pair of shoes cost four dollars now. Pair takes the singular

3. How many times has she told you that same old story?

4. The sound of the people were really loud. Sound takes the singular
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.

AnonymousI doesn't get passpot
Sorry, what??
Thanks for the help and clearing my mistakes. For the first group.
Want to discuss 2nd groupe though.
1. Neither goes with singular meaning i would place Verb "is" in place of "are" to balance the sentence right !
2. Yes in this sentence i find stuck badly
i have read that if a sentence begin with infinite pronoun (in this case ONE), verb should follow with its object of preposition which is in this case is plural ( Of shoes ) and verb "cost" is plural as well. This makes sentence correct.
I don't know if we take pair as our subject then its wrong sentence as you have pointed out.
Please help me out with this confusing problem.
And also in 3rd sentence Story is the subject as its singular and verb is singular as well.
