    A. Adverb
    Explanation
    The word "quickly" is classified as an adverb because it modifies a verb, indicating the speed or manner in which an action is performed. It does not describe a person, place, or thing (noun), nor does it show the relationship between two words (preposition). Additionally, it does not directly modify a noun (adjective). Therefore, "quickly" is correctly categorized as an adverb.

    Explanation

    Explanation
    A preposition is a word that describes the relationship between a noun or pronoun and another word in a sentence. It shows the position, direction, time, or manner of the action being performed by the noun or pronoun. For example, in the sentence "The book is on the table," the preposition "on" describes the position of the book in relation to the table.

    Correct Answer
    C. Describing word.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Describing word." This is because an adjective is a word that describes or modifies a noun or pronoun. It provides more information about the noun or pronoun by giving details about its size, color, shape, appearance, etc. In this context, "describing word" accurately defines the function of an adjective.

    Is below and above a adverb?

    B. False
    Explanation
    The given answer, "False," is correct. "Below" and "above" are not adverbs. They are prepositions that indicate position or location. Adverbs modify verbs, adjectives, or other adverbs, but "below" and "above" do not perform this function. Therefore, the statement that "below" and "above" are adverbs is incorrect.

    Explanation
    Yes, fat can be used as an adjective. It is commonly used to describe something that contains a high amount of natural oils or is thick and fleshy. For example, we can say "She ate a fat burger" or "He has a fat cat." In both cases, fat is used as an adjective to describe the noun.

    Explanation
    The given words, "fat, small, big, skinny, tall, wide" are all examples of adjectives. Adjectives are words that describe or modify nouns or pronouns. They provide more information about the size, shape, color, or qualities of the noun they are describing. In this case, the words are describing the characteristics or qualities of something or someone. Therefore, the correct answer is adjectives.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Are first and last adverbs.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    First and last are both adverbs. An adverb is a word that modifies a verb, adjective, or other adverb. In this case, "first" and "last" are modifying the verb "are" by indicating the position of the adverbs in relation to the subject. Therefore, the statement is true.

    A. Above
    B. Below
    Explanation
    Above and below are prepositions because they indicate the position of one thing in relation to another. They show the relationship between the noun that follows them and other elements in the sentence. Creamy and blue, on the other hand, are not prepositions as they do not indicate position or show a relationship between words.

      True

    • B.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given answer is true because "of" is indeed a preposition. Prepositions are words that show the relationship between a noun or pronoun and other words in a sentence. "Of" is commonly used to indicate possession, origin, or association. For example, in the phrase "the book of the student," "of" shows the relationship between the book and the student. Therefore, "of" is a preposition.

      Under, below, above

      Is, was, are, were, am

    Correct Answer
    A. Jumping, swimming, playing
    Explanation
    The words "jumping," "swimming," and "playing" are adverbs because they describe the manner in which an action is performed. They modify verbs by indicating how the action is carried out. For example, in the sentence "She is swimming gracefully," the adverb "gracefully" describes how the action of swimming is being performed. Similarly, "jumping," "swimming," and "playing" can be used in the same way to modify verbs and provide more information about the action being performed.
