    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Very
    B. Super
    D. Really
    Explanation
    The correct answer includes the intensifiers "Very," "Super," and "Really." Intensifiers are words that enhance or strengthen the meaning of another word. In this case, all three intensifiers modify adjectives or adverbs to make them more intense or extreme. "Very" is commonly used to intensify adjectives, "Super" is a colloquial intensifier, and "Really" is used to emphasize the degree or extent of something. Therefore, these three words fit the category of intensifiers.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    n't is an adverb

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement "n't is an adverb" is true. In English, the contraction "n't" is commonly used to indicate negation. It is formed by combining the auxiliary verb or verb "not" with the preceding verb. For example, in the sentence "She doesn't like coffee," "doesn't" is a contraction of "does not" and functions as an adverb to express the negative form of the verb "like." Therefore, "n't" is considered an adverb in English grammar.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Does an adverb modify an intensifier?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    An adverb does not modify an intensifier. Adverbs modify verbs, adjectives, or other adverbs, but intensifiers are already adverbs themselves. Intensifiers are used to strengthen the meaning of another word, typically an adjective or adverb, without changing its basic meaning. Therefore, an adverb cannot modify an intensifier.

    Correct Answer
    D. None Of The Above
    Explanation

"He" is a pronoun, "Very" and "Super" are adjectives, and "None Of The Above" is a phrase indicating that none of the previous options are correct. Therefore, the correct answer is "None Of The Above" as none of the given options are adverbs.
