As my favourite sport exercise i engages in these; walk, jump, catch and throw- activities.

My favorite sport is basketball. In this sport, I catch the ball from my teammates, then I run quickly towards the upper basket. Finally I jump in the air and throw the ball into the basket to score.

Hi Sir,

How 'Watching tv" is an action verb?
Since we use our 'sense of sight' that's why it is an action verb? Or some different reason?

Are our five senses indicates action verb??

Hi Rsb,

Verbs of perception are often stative: hear, see, smell, taste, feel.

However, we can also choose to use our senses in an active way. Watch is different from see because we choose to watch, while seeing is something that happens without an active decision. 

Sometimmes the dynamic and stative verbs for these areas are different and sometimes the same verb is used:

see - watch

hear - listen

taste - taste

smell - smell

feel - feel/touch

My favorite sport is badminton, when playing I will use one hand usually the left hand to throw shuttlecock into the air and use another hand (right hand) that hold the racket to catch and kick it to transmit to the other side

Fabulous, thank you for every information I have from you.

I admit that I don't practice any sport activity at this time. When I was younger I did a lot of rugby, so I had to catch, throw and kick the ball and of course also to run. I know cycle and swim, not very well but that is ok. I am very bad to skate. I try 3 times I think and I wasn't really confident.

My favorite sport is walking and cycling.

I like cycle, I riding my bike almost each day. Also I often swim, these are my favourite activities.

I like to walk at night and some times jugging and running.
