Exam On Sentences: Quiz! - Quiz


Are you able to pass this exam on sentences? This quiz will ask which sentence is correct, and you must determine the validity of each sentence.

If you are intent upon learning how to structure sentences properly, this is the quiz for you.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which sentence is correct?

    • A.

      Next my hose there's a park

    • B.

      Next to my hose there's a park

    Correct Answer
    B. Next to my hose there's a park
    Explanation
    The correct sentence is "Next to my hose there's a park." The word "next" indicates the location of the park in relation to the speaker's house. The word "to" is used to show the connection or proximity between the two locations. "Hose" seems to be a typographical error, and it should be "house" instead.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Which sentence is correct?

    • A.

      Look at this house over there!

    • B.

      Look at that house over there!

    Correct Answer
    B. Look at that house over there!
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Look at that house over there!" because the word "that" is used to refer to something that is farther away from the speaker. In this case, the speaker is referring to a house that is not close to them, so "that" is the appropriate word to use.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Which sentence is correct?

    • A.

      Henry, that is my mother. Mom, that is Henry.

    • B.

      Henry, this is my mother. Mom, this is Henry.

    Correct Answer
    B. Henry, this is my mother. Mom, this is Henry.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Henry, this is my mother. Mom, this is Henry." This sentence is correct because it uses the appropriate pronouns ("this" and "is") to introduce Henry to the speaker's mother and vice versa. The sentence structure is clear and concise, making it grammatically correct.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which sentence is correct?

    • A.

      Was they at the party?

    • B.

      Were they at the party?

    Correct Answer
    B. Were they at the party?
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Were they at the party?" This is the correct sentence because "they" is a plural pronoun, and in English, plural pronouns are always paired with the verb "were" in questions.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Which sentence is correct?

    • A.

      She was no at home.

    • B.

      She was not at home.

    Correct Answer
    B. She was not at home.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "She was not at home." This sentence is grammatically correct because it uses the negative form of the verb "to be" (was not) followed by the preposition "at" and the noun "home". The word "no" in the first sentence is incorrect and does not make sense in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which sentence is correct?

    • A.

      He could play chess when he was five.

    • B.

      He can play chess when he was five.

    Correct Answer
    A. He could play chess when he was five.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "He could play chess when he was five." This sentence is correct because "could" is the past tense of "can," indicating that the ability to play chess occurred in the past. The use of "was" also indicates that the action of playing chess took place at the age of five.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which sentence is correct?

    • A.

      He bought some new shoes.

    • B.

      He buyed some new shoes.

    Correct Answer
    A. He bought some new shoes.
    Explanation
    The correct sentence is "He bought some new shoes." because the past tense of the verb "buy" is "bought." The incorrect sentence "He buyed some new shoes." uses an incorrect form of the verb in the past tense.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which sentence is correct?

    • A.

      Where did you go yesterday?

    • B.

      Where you went yesterday?

    Correct Answer
    A. Where did you go yesterday?
    Explanation
    The correct sentence is "Where did you go yesterday?" This sentence follows the correct word order for a question in English, which is subject + auxiliary verb + subject + main verb. In this case, "you" is the subject, "did" is the auxiliary verb, and "go" is the main verb. The sentence "Where you went yesterday?" is incorrect because it does not follow the correct word order.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Which sentence is correct?

    • A.

      You see Jane last week?

    • B.

      Did you see Jane last week?

    Correct Answer
    B. Did you see Jane last week?
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Did you see Jane last week?" because it follows the correct structure for asking a question in the past tense using the auxiliary verb "did" and the base form of the main verb "see". The sentence "You see Jane last week?" is incorrect because it lacks the auxiliary verb "did" to form a question in the past tense.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Which sentence is correct?

    • A.

      Did she get the job?

    • B.

      Did she got the job?

    Correct Answer
    A. Did she get the job?
    Explanation
    The correct sentence is "Did she get the job?" because when forming a question in the past tense, the auxiliary verb "did" is used to indicate the past tense, and the main verb remains in its base form (without the "-ed" ending). Therefore, the correct form is "get" rather than "got".

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Which sentence is correct?

    • A.

      I went out yesterday night.

    • B.

      I went out last night.

    Correct Answer
    B. I went out last night.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I went out last night." This sentence is correct because "last night" is the appropriate phrase to use when referring to the previous night. "Yesterday night" is not a commonly used phrase, and it is more common to use "last night" to indicate the night before the current day.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Which sentence is correct?

    • A.

      He studied French al college.

    • B.

      He studyed French al college.

    Correct Answer
    A. He studied French al college.
    Explanation
    The correct sentence is "He studied French al college." The verb "studied" is the correct past tense form of the verb "study" in this sentence. The incorrect sentence "He studyed French al college" has an incorrect spelling of the past tense verb "studied."

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Which sentence is correct?

    • A.

      I was in New York the last week.

    • B.

      I was in New York last week.

    Correct Answer
    B. I was in New York last week.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I was in New York last week." This sentence is correct because it follows the standard structure of stating the time period before the location. The phrase "last week" should be placed after the location "New York" to convey the correct meaning.
