Q: Volunteers providing assistance during the Main Street Parade____ by the green shirts they are wearing.

Answer: are distinguished
Why is the answer "are distinguished"?
can it be " are distinguishing"?
A: it cannot be are distinguishing because its not grammatically correct. distinguishing is present tense meaning its happening right now but the sentence used distinguished which means its in past tense whic means it happened before or has already been done.

in the sentence it says volunteers providing assistance during the main street parade are distinguished by the green shirts they are wearing. it means the people who are volunteers are wearing green shirts in the main street parade.

"are distinguished" means that the volunteers can be differentiated from the people attending the parade.

hope that helped, its a lot of info. :)
Q: Volunteers providing assistance during the Main Street Parade____ by the green shirts they are wearing.

Answer: are distinguished
Why is the answer "are distinguished"?
can it be " are distinguishing"?
A: This looks like a passive and active voice question.

'Volunteers ... Parade' is the object in a passive voice sentence in which the subject - the person or thing that is doing the distinguishing - is not specified. The active voice version of the sentence is: People [unspecified subject] can distnguish the volunteers .... by the green shirts they are wearing.

"are distinguishing" is an active voice verb in the present tense requiring a subject to be specified and is not the correct option for the passive sentence.

Q: Volunteers have made the provision of food for the sufferers of the disaster. soa natural?
A: Volunteers have supported the provision of food for the victims of the disaster.

I regularly volunteer here with a big charity in the uk and I also teach their induction programme. I changed made to support because unless the volunteer made the food themselves then this would be factually incorrect.

I also changed the word sufferers to victims just because that is more natural in the UK.
Q: Volunteers group soa natural?
A: "Volunteer group"

Leave the "s" out.

If you were talking about the people that are volunteering, you can say volunteerS to pluralize the many.

But since you are using the word group after volunteer, it already suggests more than 1 person is a volunteer.

If you have more than 1 group of volunteers, you would then say:
Volunteer groupS. Because now there are many groups of volunteers.
Q: Volunteers are ordinary people who do extraordinary actions soa natural?
A: Instead of "extraordinary actions," say "extraordinary things."
