    Explanation
    Both sentences are correct. In modern usage, the word "email" has become widely accepted as a noun, so it does not require the hyphen. Therefore, the sentence "John submitted his resume via email" is grammatically correct.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which sentence is correct?

    • A.

      Jennifer Lopez was recently on the cover of the magazine People.

    • B.

      Jennifer Lopez was recently on the cover of the magazine "People."

    Correct Answer
    A. Jennifer Lopez was recently on the cover of the magazine People.
    Explanation
    Both sentences are correct, but the second sentence is more accurate. In the second sentence, the word "People" is enclosed in quotation marks, indicating that it is the exact title of the magazine. This helps to avoid any confusion or ambiguity. However, the first sentence is also grammatically correct as it clearly states that Jennifer Lopez was on the cover of the magazine People.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which sentence is correct?

    • A.

      Luke lives S of the Burger King and hospital.

    • B.

      Luke lives south of the Burger King and hospital.

    Correct Answer
    B. Luke lives south of the Burger King and hospital.
    Explanation
    The correct sentence is "Luke lives south of the Burger King and hospital." This sentence is correct because it uses the word "south" to indicate the direction of Luke's location in relation to the Burger King and hospital. The use of "S" in the first sentence is incorrect as it is an abbreviation and not a proper word.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which sentence is correct?

    • A.

      The banquet ended at midnight.

    • B.

      The banquet ended at 12 a.m.

    • C.

      The banquet ended at 12 a.m./midnight.

    Correct Answer
    A. The banquet ended at midnight.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The banquet ended at midnight." This sentence is correct because it provides a clear and specific time for when the banquet ended. "12 a.m." and "12 a.m./midnight" are redundant and unnecessary, as "midnight" already implies 12 a.m. Therefore, the most concise and accurate sentence is the one that simply states "The banquet ended at midnight."

    • D.

      Facebook bought Whatsapp for $19 billion.

    Correct Answer
    D. Facebook bought Whatsapp for $19 billion.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Facebook bought Whatsapp for $19 billion." This sentence follows the standard format of stating the amount in dollars before the word "billion" and using the dollar sign ($) symbol. It is a clear and concise way to express the purchase price of Whatsapp.

  • 10.

    • B.

      Soda used to cost $0.25.

    • C.

      Soda used to cost 25 cents.

    Correct Answer
    C. Soda used to cost 25 cents.
    Explanation
    The sentence "Soda used to cost 25 cents." is correct because it uses the appropriate currency symbol for cents and presents the cost in a clear and concise manner.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Which sentence is correct?

    • A.

      Michael Jackson sang THRILLER.

    • B.

      Michael Jackson sang "Thriller."

    Correct Answer
    B. Michael Jackson sang "Thriller."
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Michael Jackson sang 'Thriller.'" because when referring to a specific song or title, it should be written in quotation marks. In this case, "Thriller" is the title of the song, so it needs to be enclosed in quotation marks to indicate that it is the exact title being referred to.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Which sentence is correct?

    • A.

      Ticket prices rose 5%.

    • B.

      Ticket prices rose 5 percent.

    Correct Answer
    B. Ticket prices rose 5 percent.
    Explanation
    Both sentences are grammatically correct, but the second sentence is more formal and adheres to the standard usage of writing numbers as words. In formal writing, it is generally recommended to spell out numbers from zero to ten and use numerals for numbers greater than ten. Therefore, the second sentence, "Ticket prices rose 5 percent," is the correct choice.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Which sentence is correct?

    • A.

      We fly to New York June 26.

    • B.

      We fly to New York June 26th.

    • C.

      We fly to New York Jun. 26.

    • D.

      We fly to New York Jun. 26th.

    Correct Answer
    A. We fly to New York June 26.
    Explanation
    The correct sentence is "We fly to New York June 26." This sentence follows the standard format of stating the month (June) followed by the day (26) without any additional punctuation or abbreviations.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Which sentence is correct?

    • A.

      The game starts at 7:00 p.m.

    • B.

      The game starts at 7 p.m.

    Correct Answer
    B. The game starts at 7 p.m.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The game starts at 7 p.m." This is because when stating a time, it is more common to use the format of "7 p.m." rather than "7:00 p.m." The use of the colon is not necessary in this case, as it is understood that "p.m." indicates the time is in the evening.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Which sentence is correct?

    • A.

      She saw her exboyfriend at the store yesterday.

    • B.

      She saw her ex-boyfriend at the store yesterday.

    Correct Answer
    B. She saw her ex-boyfriend at the store yesterday.
    Explanation
    The sentence "She saw her ex-boyfriend at the store yesterday." is correct because it follows the standard convention of using a hyphen to separate the prefix "ex" from the word "boyfriend". Hyphens are used to join two or more words together to create a compound word, or to clarify the meaning of a word. In this case, the hyphen clarifies that "ex" is a prefix indicating that the person was previously the subject's boyfriend.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Which sentence is correct?

    • A.

      The hotel is located at 1357 NW Franklin Court.

    • B.

      The hotel is located at 1357 Northwest Franklin Court.

    Correct Answer
    A. The hotel is located at 1357 NW Franklin Court.
    Explanation
    Both sentences are correct, but the first sentence is more commonly used. In this case, "NW" is an abbreviation for "Northwest" and is commonly used in addresses to indicate the direction. However, it is also acceptable to spell out "Northwest" in the address, as shown in the second sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    Which sentence is correct?

    • A.

      Ten thousand people came to the opening of the new stadium.

    • B.

      10,000 people came to the opening of the new stadium.

    Correct Answer
    A. Ten thousand people came to the opening of the new stadium.
    Explanation
    The sentence "Ten thousand people came to the opening of the new stadium" is correct because it uses words to express the number, rather than numerals. In formal writing, it is generally preferred to spell out numbers from one to ten, and use numerals for numbers greater than ten. Therefore, the sentence is grammatically accurate.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    Which sentence is correct?

    • A.

      My grandmother was born in 1928.

    • B.

      My grandmother was born in 1,928.

    Correct Answer
    A. My grandmother was born in 1928.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "My grandmother was born in 1928." The comma in the second option is incorrect as it is not necessary to separate thousands in a year. Additionally, using a comma in this context would imply that the year is in the thousands, which is not the case. Therefore, the first option is the correct and grammatically accurate sentence.
