    • D.

      A flock of mouses.

    Correct Answer
    B. Mice
    Explanation
    The correct plural form of "mouse" is "mice." This is a regular plural form in English, where the "s" is replaced with "ce" to indicate more than one. "Mouses" and "mices" are incorrect plural forms. The phrase "A flock of mouses" is grammatically incorrect as it should be "A flock of mice" since "flock" is a collective noun that takes the plural form "mice."

    Correct Answer

    Explanation

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The correct plural form of "calf" is "calves". This is because when forming the plural of a word ending in "f" or "fe", the "f" or "fe" is usually changed to "v" and "es" is added. In this case, "calf" becomes "calves".

    Correct Answer
    C. Cows

    • C.

      Tuuths

    • D.

      Pair of teeths.

    Correct Answer
    B. Teeth
    Explanation
    The plural form of "tooth" is "teeth." This is a common irregular plural in English, where the vowel sound changes from "oo" to "ee" in the plural form. The incorrect options "tooths" and "tuuths" do not follow the standard rules for forming plurals in English. The option "Pair of teeths" is grammatically incorrect as "teeth" is already the plural form of "tooth," so adding "s" to "teeth" is redundant.
