Article Exam Trivia Quiz! - Quiz


How much do you know about an article as a part of speech? An article is any member of a class of dedicated words employed with noun phrases to signify the identifiability of the referents of the noun phrases. Articles are part of a broader classification called determiners, which also allows possessive determiners and quantifiers. This quiz will be the ideal place to start learning about articles. Good luck passing the exam.
