Two For the Price of One

Which word from Group B can be added to Group A? Why?

Group A: bear, fall, grind, lie
Group B: drop, measure, play, see, tape, walk


Answer

see

Each word in Group A is an irregular verb whose past tense is also the present tense of a regular verb. For a regular verb, the past tense is simply the present tense with a "D" or "ED" or "_ED" added on its end (drop, dropped; measure, measured; play, played; tape, taped; walk, walked). With an irregular verb, the past tense is not achieved in those ways.

The past tense of BEAR is BORE; the past tense of BORE is BORED.
The past tense of FALL is FELL; the past tense of FELL is FELLED.
The past tense of GRIND is GROUND; the past tense of GROUND is GROUNDED.
The past tense of LIE is LAY; the past tense of LAY is LAID.

The past tense of SEE is SAW; the past tense of SAW is SAWED.
