Why is this sentence correct?
I don't know whether or not this sentence is correct. If yes, why ?
- Why should he thinks that ?
Please give me clear explainations!
You ask about the following sentence:
Why should he thinks that?
Notice that you are using a modal verb [should], followed by another [mian] verb [think]. The rule is that modal verbs are followed by base form verbs. Let's quickly identify some modal verbs: can, could, should, must, will, would, etc. Likewise, let's clarify what is meant by a base form verb: verbs are normally categorised into 4 'forms': present simple, past simple, past participle, present participle. Here's an example of the 4 forms: go, went, gone, going. You use the verb 'think' in your sentence. Here are the 4 forms: think, thought, thought, thinking. So, you have to ensure that you use the first form [base form], and this means that the verb has no additions [no -s, no -ed, no -ing]. The error in your sentence above is that you use the base from + -s [present simple tense], and this is not allowed.
Your sentence should be corrected to:
Why should he think that?
