This sentence is an example of a common mistake when people use English as a second language, having English a very different structure from other languages it is recurrent o have structural errors.
Explanation: I believe this would be the answer because the transition did not have the correct construction for a sentence.
C: English as a second language
The sentence "He buys me good presents, doesn't he? "when written/read/or spoken "He buy me good presen, no?" sounds like someone from a non-speaking country that has learned or heard a little English, enough to communicate basic ideas, usually employing similar structures as their native language. For example, Latin uses "no" for "no; don't; doesn't;" etc.
I have/had seen a duck.
The sentence "I seen a duck" is ungrammatical because the verb "seen" is in participle form and It requires the auxiliary verb "have" to show tense.
The correct versions would be:
- I have seen a duck. (in present perfect tense)
- I had seen a duck. (in past perfect tense)
We can also say this sentence in a correct form changing the tense of the verb:
- I saw a duck. (in past tense)
- I see a duck. (in present tense)
Incorrect usage of helping verb 'has' makes it sound ungrammatical or the wrong usage of the verb 'swam' with has.
"Jane swam the course several times." is the correct form or it can be
"Jane has swum the course several times".
There is a grammatical flaw in the sentence due to the unnecessary usage of the helping verb 'has' which makes it superfluous. If the helping verb has to be remained intact then the past participle form of verb i.e. 'swum' should be used. Thus, there can be two possible answers as given above.
It should be
Jane swam the course several times.
1. read the following excerpt from franklin d. roosevelt's "fireside chat 19":
on the other side of the picture, we must learn also to know that guerilla warfare against the germans in, let us say serbia or norway, us; that a successful russian offensive against the germans us; and that british successes on land or sea in any part of the world strengthen our hands.
remember always that germany and italy, regardless of any formal declaration of war, consider themselves at war with the united states at this moment just as much as they consider themselves at war with britain or russia. and germany puts all the other republics of the americas into the same category of enemies. the people of our sister republics of this hemisphere can be honored by that fact.
the true goal we seek is far above and beyond the ugly field of battle. when we resort to force, as now we must, we are determined that this force shall be directed toward ultimate good as well as against immediate evil. we americans are not destroyers — we are builders.

alliteration is the repetition of the same or similar consonants. having that in mind, i would say that the correct answer is: so shows a snowy dove trooping with crows.
