      Bushes

      Bushies

    Correct Answer
    B. Bushes
    Explanation
    The plural of "bush" is "bushes." In English, when we want to indicate that there is more than one of something, we usually add an "-es" to the end of the word. This is the case with "bushes."

    The plural of "dog" is "dogs" because when we want to refer to more than one dog, we add an "s" at the end of the word. This is a common rule in English grammar for forming plurals of nouns. "Dig" and "dogues" are not correct because they do not follow this rule.

      Wives

      Wifies

    Correct Answer
    B. Wives
    Explanation
    The plural of "wife" is "wives." This is because in English, when a noun ends in -f or -fe, the -f or -fe is usually changed to -v and -es is added to form the plural. Therefore, "wifes" and "wifies" are incorrect plural forms.
