General rule of adding ‘s’ or ‘es’ with verb

"es" is added with verb which ends with letter" " Examples
"O" Go-goes, Do-does,
"CH" Teach-teaches, Fetch-fetches
"SS" Miss-misses, Kiss-kisses
"SH" Finish-finishes, Wash-washes
"X" Box-boxes, fax-faxes
When last letter of verb is 'y' and second last letter is a consonant, then for adding 's' with the verb, the letter 'y' is replaced with 'ies' jaise - study-studies, cry-cries, try-tries. When last letter of verb is 'y' and second last letter is a vowel, then we just add 's' after 'y' jaise - obey-obeys, play-plays, day-days.
In almost other cases, "s" is added with the verb.


A sentence must have a verb. When another verb comes in the sentence, 'To' is used before another verb(s) (other than main verb). e.g. He goes to park to see Anita. Here main verb is 'go' which is used as per rule of the tense and another verb is 'see' hence 'to' is used before verb 'see'.

When 'Come or Go' is used before name of places in a sentence, 'To' is used after 'Come/Go' 'To' is not used before the words - 'Home / Abroad / Here / There'

Vaakya kaa lagbhag pahalaa shabd Subject hotaa hai. Jis shabd ke ant meiN 'naa, nee, ne' kaa prayog ho use verb kahate hai (jaise-likhanaa, paDhanaa, sonaa, aadee)

Hindi ke vaakyo meiN mukhya verb Kaal ke niyamaanusaar hotaa hai jaise khelataa hoon, khelaa, khelungaa, aadee. Jab Hindi ke vaakya meN, verb ke ant meiN 'naa/ne' kaa prayog ho to ham verb se pahale 'To' kaa prayog karate hai (jaise - Vah park meiN Anita se milane jaataa hai - is vaakya meiN verb 'milane' ke ant meiN 'ne' aayaa hai atah is se pahale 'to' kaa prayog karenge - (He goes to park to see Anita.)

Sthaan se pahale jab bhee 'come/go' kaa prayog ho to 'come/go' ke baad apanee taraf se 'To' kaa prayog karate hai. In shabd 'Home / Abroad / Here / There' se pahale 'To' kaa prayog nahee karate hai.
