Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The weather         nice.I        not rich.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "is" because it is the correct verb form to use in the sentence. The subject "The weather" requires the singular verb "is" to agree in number. The sentence is stating that the weather is nice.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    This bag          heavy.

  • 3. 

    These bags        heavy.

    Explanation
    The sentence is incomplete and lacks a subject. To make it grammatically correct, we need to add a subject before the verb "are". Hence, the correct answer is "are".

  • 4. 

    Look! There          Carol.

  • 5. 

    My brother and I             good tennis players.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "are" because the subject "My brother and I" is plural, indicating that there are more than one person involved. Therefore, the verb "are" should be used to agree with the plural subject.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Emily            at home.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "is" because it is the correct form of the verb "to be" that matches with the subject "Emily." In this sentence, "is" is used to show that Emily is currently at home.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Her children              at school.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "is" because it agrees with the subject "Her children." In this sentence, "Her children" is a plural subject, but it is treated as a singular noun because it is a collective noun referring to multiple individuals as a single unit. Therefore, the verb "is" is used instead of "are."

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    I             a texi driver.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "am" because it is the correct form of the verb "to be" that agrees with the subject "I". In this sentence, "I" is the subject and "am" is the corresponding form of the verb "to be" used in the present tense.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    My sister              nurse.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "is" because in this sentence, the subject "My sister" is singular and therefore requires the singular form of the verb "to be," which is "is."
