      Predicate

    • C.

      Neither

    Correct Answer
    B. Predicate
    Explanation
    The underlined part "are having a party" is the predicate of the sentence.

The predicate includes the verb "are having" and the noun phrase "a party," which together express the action or state of the subject.

      Subject

    • C.

      Predicate

    Correct Answer
    A. Neither
    Explanation
    The underlined part "Joseph's brother bought a new car" is neither the subject nor the predicate. The subject of the sentence is "Joseph's brother" and the predicate is "bought a new car." The underlined part is a noun phrase that modifies the subject, providing additional information about who bought the car.

    Tell whether the underlined part is the subject, the predicate or neither:The U.S. President spoke to the American people.

      Subject

    • B.

      Predicate

    • C.

      Neither

    Correct Answer
    A. Subject
    Explanation
    The underlined part "The U.S. President" is the subject of the sentence. It refers to the person who performed the action of speaking to the American people. The subject is typically the noun or pronoun that performs the action or is being described in a sentence. In this case, the subject is clearly identified as the U.S. President.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    My aunt or my uncle             by train tonight.

    • A.

      Is arriving

    • B.

      Are arriving

    Correct Answer
    A. Is arriving
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "is arriving" because the subject of the sentence is "My aunt or my uncle," which is singular. Therefore, the verb "is" should be used to agree with the singular subject.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

     Neither the plates nor the serving bowl        on that shelf.

    • A.

      Goes

    • B.

      Go

    Correct Answer
    A. Goes
    Explanation
    The subject of the sentence is "Neither the plates nor the serving bowl," which is a compound subject joined by the conjunction "nor." When we have a compound subject joined by "nor," the verb should agree with the subject closest to it, which in this case is "serving bowl." Therefore, the correct verb form is "goes."

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The bed and breakfast        charming.

    • A.

      Was

    • B.

      Were

    Correct Answer
    A. Was
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "was" because "bed and breakfast" is a singular noun and requires a singular verb. In this sentence, "was" is the past tense of the verb "to be" and agrees with the singular subject "bed and breakfast."

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Breaking and entering         against the law.

    • A.

      Is

    • B.

      Are

    Correct Answer
    A. Is
    Explanation
    The subject of the sentence is "Breaking and entering," which is a singular noun phrase. Therefore, the correct verb to use is "is," which agrees with the singular subject.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    A lot of the pies              disappeared.

    • A.

      Have

    • B.

      Has

    Correct Answer
    A. Have
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "have" because the subject "a lot of the pies" is plural. In English, when the subject is plural, the verb should also be plural. Therefore, "have" is the correct form of the verb to agree with the subject.
