    Definitions need not be full sentences. Just concentrate on the use of "carry out" the dictionary is trying to show.

Sentences begin with a capital letter and end with a period or question mark. Your example isn’t punctuated as a sentence. Because it came from a dictionary, and we can see the same fragments in many other places in that dictionary, we can conclude it was probably intentional and not hasty writing or a typo.

It’s not a sentence, so it doesn’t follow the rules of a sentence.
