Hi. Comfused as a newbe .. why is it la situation devient instead of deviens
This question relates to:French lesson "Conjugate venir, tenir and derivatives in Le Présent (present tense)"
Hi Sara, it is "devient" because in a sentence like "la situation devient..." the subject is in third person singular (he/she/it) and the third person singular of the verb "devenir" is "devient".
Incidentally, to check any verb conjugation, you might find this site helpful: http://conjugator.reverso.net/conjugation-french-verb-devenir.html
For "devenir" in present tense indicative it goes like this:
je deviens, tu deviens, il/elle/on devient, nous devenons vous devenez, ils/elles deviennent
I hope that helps a bit.
