Answer:

The past tense of the verb "to read" is "read".

Explanation:

The verb "to read" is an irregular verb. While both the present tense and the past tense of "to read" are spelled exactly the same way, they are pronounced differently (words such as these are known as homographs). In the present tense the verb "to read" is pronounced like "reed" (the aquatic plant), while the past tense is pronounced like the color "red".
