Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    She doesn't belong to this class, and ................ I.

    • A.

      Neither does

    • B.

      Doesn't either

    • C.

      Neither do

    • D.

      Neither does

    Correct Answer
    C. Neither do
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "neither do". This is because the sentence is in the negative form, and the word "neither" is used to show that the same negative situation applies to another person or thing. In this case, it is saying that the person does not belong to the class, and another person or thing also does not belong to the class.

    • D.

      Neither can

    Correct Answer
    A. Can't either
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "can't either" because it is the correct negative form to match the negative statement "Jude can't swim". "Neither can't" and "couldn't either" are incorrect because they create a double negative, while "neither can" is incorrect because it lacks the negative form "not".

    Correct Answer
    A. Didn't either

      Neither does

    • D.

      Do too

    Correct Answer
    C. Neither does
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "neither does." This answer is appropriate because it completes the sentence in a grammatically correct way. The sentence structure requires a negative statement to match the first part of the sentence, which states "I don't have money." "Neither does" is the correct choice because it indicates that the other person mentioned in the sentence also does not have money.

    • D.

      Doesn't

    Correct Answer
    C. Does
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "does" because it is used to maintain subject-verb agreement in the sentence. Since the subject "my mom" is singular and the verb "smoke" is in the present tense, the correct form of the verb to use is "does." This indicates that the action of smoking is not applicable to the subject "my dad."
