If a little tomato sauce is .... to it, its taste will definitely improve.

I think that "add" should go in the blank.

But, according to what I understand in this sentence I cannot use add here because it is not forming a grammatically correct sentence and I have no clue what else to use.

Please correct me if i am wrong

  • @Sander Yes,but why the verb(add) changed to past.it sounds correct but i don't think we should violate the rule. – Jalaj Chawla Aug 28 '15 at 6:00

    It is not a past, it is a passive verb. The tomato sauce cannot add itself, someone or soemthing else performs the action. – Vlammuh Aug 28 '15 at 6:01
  • @Sander Okay i need to remember this form of sense.. – Jalaj Chawla Aug 28 '15 at 6:03

    And -very important - the second 'its' corresponds to the first 'it', showing the need for a passive construction. Not the tomato sauce, but the 'it' will taste better. – Stephie Aug 28 '15 at 7:02

The answer to your question is is added.

If a little tomato sauce is added to it, its taste will definitely improve.

Your title and first line differ, and I was going off the first line with is added. If using only your title, the answer would be just added.
