Thank you for posting.

Please check out this lesson: https://www.japanesepod101.com/lesson/newbie-lesson-s2-21-nihongo-dojo-welcome-to-style-you-21/

You can see how you can conjugate some vocabulary with "masu form" which is polite form.

Feel free to ask us questions,

Konnichiwa Nopinopa,

Thank you for your message.

Actually we use 外す as "miss" especially in the situation when we are aiming something but failed. For example... "missile had missed its target/ミサイルは標的を外した", "He always misses the target of dart game/彼はいつもダーツゲームの的を外す"

Thank you for your comment.

Yes you are right. It somehow turned to different form. They could make sentence like 「彼は私たちを待つと言う。」Instead of 「言っていました」but guess content team wanted to make it conversational way not like written Japanese. Apologize for the confusion.

I was wondering how I could conjugate these into polite Japanese? Thanks!👍

Ummm... your example for iu (say) does not look or sound like it even uses the actual word? Supposedly they use said but it does not sound or look anything like iu. Not a good example.

Hmmm... ejje.weblio doesn't think that 外す is miss... take off、take out、except、leave off、exclude、omit、leave out、unfasten、cancel、delete — no 'miss'.

I didn't know

感謝する and 外す

I'm surprised that ほしい (i-adjective), です (copula) and 必要 (na-adjective) are called *actions* here.
