Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    He, she, it, mine, me are all examples of what?

    • A.

      Nouns

    • B.

      Pronouns

    • C.

      Adjectives

    Correct Answer
    B. Pronouns
    Explanation
    He, she, it, mine, and me are all examples of pronouns. Pronouns are words that are used in place of nouns to avoid repetition and make sentences less repetitive and more concise. In this case, "he," "she," and "it" are personal pronouns used to refer to specific individuals or objects, while "mine" and "me" are possessive and objective pronouns respectively, used to show ownership or act as the object of a sentence. Therefore, the correct answer is pronouns.

      Jealousy

    Correct Answer
    C. Jealousy
    Explanation
    Jealousy is an example of an abstract noun because it refers to a feeling or emotion that cannot be physically touched or seen.

    Correct Answer
    A. Subject
    Explanation
    "My best friend and I" is an example of a subject because it is the noun phrase that performs the action or is being described in a sentence.

    Explanation
    "Jumped through a hoop" is an example of a predicate because it is the part of the sentence that provides information about the subject (the one who jumped).
