There's a sentence without a verb.

imfeduptoo answers:

A sentence without a verb would be grammatically correct only if a verb is implied.
Eg, the single word answer to the question, "Have you eaten?", could be "Yes".
Yes is a sentence but the verb 'Have' is implied. (Yes, I have).

rainchild answers:

Leggy, that should be a comment to Wumpus' answer, right? If not, then "cares" and "give" are your verbs.
