I'm not sure why this rule applies, but the rule is like this: If one of the words has got to do with your five senses, then the answer has to be in the present tense, without the 's' at the end. Or, the answer can be a present continuous tense, without the 'is' or 'are'.

Hope this helps! :)

After words like made , watch , saw and heard must be an infinitive , or root word . For example:
Jane saw the animal WALK into the trap .
Joe heard the girl CRY .
:D
