Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Jane and David have been on a raft for weeks. 

    Explanation
    “Jane” and “David” are Proper Nouns. A proper noun is a specific name for a particular person, place, or thing. They are always capitalized in English. In this case, “Jane” and “David” are the names of specific people, so they are proper nouns. The other types of nouns - common, collective, concrete/material, and abstract - do not apply to “Jane” and “David”.

    Jane still has hope but David feels despair.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "abstract noun, abstract" because in the given sentence, "hope" and "despair" are both abstract nouns. Abstract nouns are things that cannot be perceived by the senses, such as emotions, ideas, or concepts. In this case, "hope" and "despair" are both feelings or states of mind that cannot be seen or touched. Therefore, they are considered abstract nouns.

  • 4. 

    Rather than give into hunger, David tries to fish.

    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "abstract, abstract noun". In this sentence, the word "hunger" is an abstract noun because it refers to a concept or a feeling that cannot be perceived by the senses. It is not a tangible or physical object. David's decision to fish instead of giving into hunger showcases his ability to prioritize and think abstractly, considering long-term needs over immediate gratification.

    David makes a net from an old bag and thread.

    Explanation
    The given answer suggests that the word "material" is a noun and the word "concrete" is also a noun. This implies that both "material" and "concrete" are being used as nouns in the sentence. The sentence states that David makes a net from an old bag and thread, indicating that the bag and thread are the materials used by David to create the net. The word "concrete" could be used to emphasize that the materials used are specific and tangible, rather than being abstract or hypothetical.

  • 6. 

    David uses his intelligence to catch a fish and Jane is happy

    Explanation
    The given answer "abstract, abstract nouns" is correct because both "intelligence" and "happiness" are abstract nouns. Abstract nouns refer to ideas, qualities, or states that cannot be perceived by the senses. In this scenario, David's intelligence is an abstract concept as it cannot be physically seen or touched. Similarly, Jane's happiness is also an abstract emotion that cannot be directly observed. Therefore, both "intelligence" and "happiness" are examples of abstract nouns.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "abstract, abstract noun" because the sentence describes Jane collecting rain in a tarp, which is a physical action (concrete), but also mentions that thirst is a problem, which is a concept or idea (abstract).

An abstract noun is a noun that represents an idea, quality, or state rather than a concrete object. In this case, the stories that David and Jane make up are not about specific tangible things, but rather about abstract concepts or ideas.

    A powerful love grows between David and Jane during the time that they spend at sea.

    Explanation
    The given sentence describes the development of a strong love between David and Jane while they are at sea. The word "common" is used to describe the type of noun, which in this case is a common noun. A common noun is a general name for a person, place, thing, or idea, and it does not refer to any specific individual or entity. In this sentence, "David" and "Jane" are common nouns as they are general names for people.

In this sentence, the word "abstract" is used to describe the type of love being discussed. The word "abstract" refers to something that is not tangible or physical, but rather conceptual or theoretical. In this context, it suggests that the love between Jane and David is not based on material possessions or physical attraction, but rather on selflessness and sacrifice. This type of love has been instrumental in helping them overcome challenges and continue their relationship. Therefore, "abstract" is used to describe the nature of the love being discussed in the sentence.
