      Hi Mayank Jain
      Thank you for your question. My reply has been delayed because of technical problems, I’m sorry.
      You asked: I know akshay’s address. I would have visited him.√.(( please combine sentence using second conditional .))

      This is not really a question and it has mixed verb forms (present simple and infinitive perfect with would) but I suppose the answer they are looking for is the following:

      If I knew Ashay’s address, I would visit him. ….. This is the second conditional and means that “I don’t know Ashay’s address so I can’t visit him”, this refers to a present/future situation

      If it was referring to a past situation we would use the third conditional: “If I had known Ashay’s address, I would have visited him when I was in his town last week” …. this means that: I was in his town last week but I didn’t know his address so I didn’t visit him.

    Why Does “I” Take Plural Verbs

      I apologise for the delay in replying.
      You ask: “Why does “I” take plural verbs?”
      – First I have to say that a verb is a verb, there is no such thing as a verb that is plural.
      – There are verb forms that agree with the subject of the verb.
      – Even the verb “to be”, which has 3 forms in the present, (am, is, are) and 2 forms in the past (was, were) doesn’t have a word that is exclusively for plural subjects. Both “are” and “were” are also used with the singular version of “you” and I is used with “am”.
      – Let’s take an example of a verb (sleep) in the present:
      With singular subjects we have “I sleep” and “You sleep” and also “He sleeps”
      With plural subjects we have “We sleep”, “You sleep” and “They sleep”
      – Over hundreds of years the English language has evolved, in the past every verb form had a different word for each subject as in languages like Spanish, French and German.
      – The only different word now in the Present Simple is the third person singular form -this is the anomoly
      – In the past all the words are the same for all subjects. Adding the subject before the verb makes it unnecessary to have different words for every subject.

      I hope that answers your question
