2nd grade grammar test covering comma use


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which sentence is correct?

    • A.

      First put, a stone in a pot.

    • B.

      First put a stone, in a pot.

    • C.

      First, put a stone in a pot.

    Correct Answer
    C. First, put a stone in a pot.
    Explanation
    The correct sentence is "First, put a stone in a pot." This sentence is correct because it follows the standard structure of a sentence, with the subject "you" implied, followed by the verb "put," and then the object "a stone." The comma after "First" indicates a pause, helping to clarify the sequence of actions. The prepositional phrase "in a pot" is placed at the end, providing additional information about where the stone should be placed.

    Rate this question:

    • B.

      They put, carrots potatoes and beets in the soup.

    • C.

      They put carrots, potatoes, and beets, in the soup.

    Correct Answer
    A. They put carrots, potatoes, and beets in the soup.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "They put carrots, potatoes, and beets in the soup." This sentence is grammatically correct because it uses commas to separate the items in the list (carrots, potatoes, and beets) and does not include any unnecessary punctuation or additional commas.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Which sentence is correct?

    • A.

      Finally the soup, was ready to eat.

    • B.

      Finally, the soup was ready to eat.

    • C.

      Finally the soup was ready, to eat.

    Correct Answer
    B. Finally, the soup was ready to eat.
    Explanation
    The correct sentence is "Finally, the soup was ready to eat." The comma after "Finally" indicates a pause in the sentence and helps to separate the introductory word from the rest of the sentence. The phrase "to eat" is correctly placed after "ready," indicating the purpose or action associated with the soup being ready.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which sentence is correct?

    • A.

      Boston, MA

    • B.

      Boston, MA,

    • C.

      Boston MA,

    Correct Answer
    A. Boston, MA
    Explanation
    The correct sentence is "Boston, MA." This is because when listing a city and state together, a comma is used to separate them. In this case, the comma is correctly placed after "Boston" and before "MA." The other options either have an extra comma or do not have a comma at all, making them incorrect.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Which sentence is correct?

    • A.

      Sunday, July 4, 2004

    • B.

      Sunday July 4, 2004

    • C.

      Sunday, July 4 2004

    Correct Answer
    A. Sunday, July 4, 2004
    Explanation
    The correct sentence is "Sunday, July 4, 2004." This is because when writing a date, it is important to include the comma after the day of the week (Sunday) and after the month (July). Additionally, a comma should be placed after the day (4) to separate it from the year (2004).

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which sentence is correct?

    • B.

      Dear Uncle Jim,

    • C.

      Dear, Uncle, Jim

    Correct Answer
    B. Dear Uncle Jim,
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Dear Uncle Jim." This is the correct sentence because it follows the standard format for addressing someone in a letter or email. It begins with "Dear" followed by the person's name, in this case, "Uncle Jim." There are no unnecessary commas or other punctuation marks in this sentence.

    Correct Answer
    B. Come see our play on Friday, September 12, 2003
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Come see our play on Friday, September 12, 2003." This sentence is correct because it includes the necessary comma after the word "September" and before the year "2003." The comma is used to separate the day, month, and year in a date format.

    • C.

      Sincerely, Robin

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The correct sentence is "Sincerely, Robin." This is the correct format for a closing salutation in a letter or email. The comma is used to separate the closing word "Sincerely" from the name "Robin."

      Minnie added a carrot, Vida put in a potato, and Frank gave Bill some meat.

    Correct Answer
    C. Minnie added a carrot, Vida put in a potato, and Frank gave Bill some meat.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Minnie added a carrot, Vida put in a potato, and Frank gave Bill some meat." This sentence is grammatically correct because it follows the standard rules of punctuation. The commas are used to separate the actions performed by each person, and the final comma before "and" is used to indicate the last item in the list.

    • C.

      The cast included Ida Know Minnie, Stronie and Ann Chovie.

    Correct Answer
    A. The cast included Ida Know, Minnie Stronie, and Ann Chovie.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The cast included Ida Know, Minnie Stronie, and Ann Chovie." This sentence is correct because it properly uses commas to separate the names of the individuals in the cast. Each name is separated by a comma, and the final name is preceded by the conjunction "and." This follows the standard rule for listing multiple items in a sentence. The other options either have missing or misplaced commas, which makes them grammatically incorrect.

    Correct Answer
    C. 12 Jackson Lane, Apt. 7

This sentence is correct because it follows the standard structure of a sentence, with the subject "the audience" coming after the verb "clapped." The phrase "After the play" is correctly placed before the subject and verb, indicating the time frame in which the action occurred.
