Questions and Answers
  • 1.

    • A.

      Declarative sentence

    • B.

      Imperative sentence

    Correct Answer
    B. Imperative sentence
    Explanation
    An imperative sentence is a type of sentence that gives an order or command. It is typically used to express instructions, requests, or directives. In this case, the correct answer is "imperative sentence" because it accurately describes the type of sentence that gives an order.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    A sentence that gives a complete thought is called

    • A.

      Declarative sentence

    • B.

      Imperative sentence

    Correct Answer
    A. Declarative sentence
    Explanation
    A sentence that gives a complete thought is called a declarative sentence. This type of sentence makes a statement or provides information. It ends with a period and is used to convey facts, opinions, or ideas. Declarative sentences are commonly used in everyday communication to express thoughts or share information in a straightforward manner. They are different from imperative sentences, which give commands or make requests.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    A word that names a person, place or thing is called

    • A.

      Verb

    • B.

      Noun

    Correct Answer
    B. Noun
    Explanation
    A word that names a person, place, or thing is called a noun. Nouns are one of the eight parts of speech in English grammar and are used to identify and label people, places, objects, ideas, and concepts. They can be concrete (tangible) or abstract (intangible). Examples of nouns include "dog," "Paris," and "love." Verbs, on the other hand, are words that express an action, occurrence, or state of being. They describe what the subject of a sentence is doing or experiencing. Therefore, in this context, the correct answer is noun.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    A word that gives the action in the sentence is called

    • A.

      Noun

    • B.

      Verb

    Correct Answer
    B. Verb
    Explanation
    A word that gives the action in the sentence is called a verb. Verbs are words that express an action, occurrence, or state of being in a sentence. They are essential in conveying the main idea or purpose of a sentence. Nouns, on the other hand, are words that represent a person, place, thing, or idea. While nouns are important in providing the subject or object of a sentence, they do not indicate the action being performed. Therefore, the correct answer is verb.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    The part of the sentence that tells whom or what is talking about is called

    • A.

      Noun

    • B.

      Subject

    Correct Answer
    B. Subject
    Explanation
    The subject is the part of the sentence that tells whom or what is doing the action or being described. It is usually a noun or a pronoun. In this case, the correct answer is "subject" because it accurately describes the part of the sentence that identifies the person or thing that is performing the action or being talked about.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Part of the sentence that tells what the subject does is called

    • A.

      Verb

    • B.

      Predicate

    Correct Answer
    B. Predicate
    Explanation
    The part of the sentence that tells what the subject does is called the predicate. The predicate includes the verb and any other words that modify or complete the action of the subject. It provides information about the subject's actions, state of being, or relationships. In this case, "predicate" is the correct answer because it accurately describes the role of the verb in a sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The simple predicate will always be:

    • A.

      Noun

    • B.

      Verb

    Correct Answer
    B. Verb
    Explanation
    The simple predicate refers to the main action or verb in a sentence. It is the part of the sentence that tells us what the subject is doing. In this case, the correct answer is "verb" because the simple predicate will always be a verb. A noun can be part of the subject or the object in a sentence, but it is not the main action or verb.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    The complete subject are all the words before a verb

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the complete subject in a sentence refers to all the words that come before the verb. It includes the noun or pronoun that performs the action and any modifiers that describe it. By identifying the complete subject, we can understand who or what the sentence is about.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    A compound sentences is made of

    • A.

      Two simple subjects and conjunctions

    • B.

      Two simple sentences and conjunctions

    Correct Answer
    B. Two simple sentences and conjunctions
    Explanation
    A compound sentence is made up of two simple sentences joined together by a conjunction. The conjunction serves as a link between the two independent clauses, allowing them to be combined into a single sentence. This conjunction can be words like "and," "but," or "or." By joining two simple sentences, a compound sentence creates a more complex structure and helps to convey a more complete thought or idea.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    A simple sentence is made of:

    • A.

      Subject, noun and predicate

    • B.

      Subject, verb and predicate

    Correct Answer
    B. Subject, verb and predicate
    Explanation
    A simple sentence is made up of three main components: subject, verb, and predicate. The subject is the noun or pronoun that the sentence is about, the verb is the action or state of being, and the predicate includes the verb along with any other words or phrases that provide more information about the subject. This structure allows for a clear and concise expression of an idea or statement.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    A group of words with a subject and a verb is called:

    • A.

      Clause

    • B.

      Simple sentence

    Correct Answer
    B. Simple sentence
    Explanation
    A simple sentence is a group of words that contains a subject and a verb and expresses a complete thought. It consists of a single independent clause and does not contain any dependent clauses or additional phrases. In contrast, a clause is a group of words that contains a subject and a verb but may or may not express a complete thought. Therefore, a simple sentence is the correct term for a group of words with a subject and a verb.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    This clause can stand alone

    • A.

      Independent clause

    • B.

      Dependent clause

    Correct Answer
    A. Independent clause
    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "independent clause" because an independent clause is a complete sentence that can stand alone and express a complete thought. In this case, the clause "this clause can stand alone" is grammatically complete and does not rely on any other part of the sentence to make sense. It has a subject ("this clause") and a predicate ("can stand alone"), making it an independent clause.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    A complex sentence is made of:

    • A.

      Two simple sentences

    • B.

      An independent and dependent clause

    Correct Answer
    B. An independent and dependent clause
    Explanation
    A complex sentence is formed by combining an independent clause, which can stand alone as a complete sentence, with a dependent clause, which cannot stand alone. The independent clause expresses a complete thought, while the dependent clause adds additional information or modifies the independent clause. Therefore, the correct answer is that a complex sentence is made up of an independent and dependent clause.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    This names any place, person or thing

    • A.

      Proper noun

    • B.

      Common noun

    Correct Answer
    B. Common noun
    Explanation
    The given answer, "common noun," is correct because a common noun is a general term used to name any place, person, or thing, whereas a proper noun specifically identifies a particular place, person, or thing. In this case, since the question is asking for a term that can be used to name any place, person, or thing, the correct answer is a common noun.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    It begins with a capital letter

    • A.

      Proper noun

    • B.

      Common noun

    Correct Answer
    A. Proper noun
    Explanation
    A proper noun is a specific name used for an individual person, place, or organization. It always starts with a capital letter to distinguish it from common nouns, which are general names for people, places, or things. In this case, the fact that the word in question begins with a capital letter indicates that it is a proper noun.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    This shows that one person, place or thing owns something

    • A.

      Singular possesive nouns

    • B.

      Irregular plural nouns

    Correct Answer
    A. Singular possesive nouns
    Explanation
    This answer is correct because singular possessive nouns indicate ownership by a single person, place, or thing. These nouns are formed by adding an apostrophe and the letter "s" ('s) to the end of the singular noun. For example, "the dog's bone" indicates that the bone belongs to the dog. Singular possessive nouns are used to show possession or ownership in a sentence.

    Rate this question:

    Correct Answer
    B. Linking verb
    Explanation
    The given explanation correctly identifies that the verb in question does not show action, but rather is used to describe or link the subject to a noun, pronoun, or adjective. This is the characteristic of a linking verb, which connects the subject to additional information about it.

    • B.

      Pronoun

    Correct Answer
    B. Pronoun

    A pronoun is a word that replaces a noun in a sentence. It is used to avoid repetition and make the sentence less repetitive. In this case, the word "this" is being used to replace a noun and therefore is functioning as a pronoun.

    Rate this question:

    Is a word that describes a noun, it answers what kind, how many, which one

    • A.

      Adverb

    • B.

      Adjective

    Correct Answer
    B. Adjective
    Explanation
    An adjective is a word that describes a noun and provides information about what kind, how many, or which one. It adds more detail or description to the noun it modifies. Adjectives help to clarify or enhance the meaning of the noun in a sentence. In this case, since the word is described as answering what kind, how many, or which one, it aligns with the definition and function of an adjective.

    a, an and the are:

    • A.

      Articles

    A. Articles
    Explanation
    Articles are a type of determiner that are used to specify or indicate the noun that follows. They include the definite article "the" and the indefinite articles "a" and "an". These articles help to clarify whether the noun is specific or general, and whether it is countable or uncountable. Therefore, the correct answer is articles.

    An adverb is a word that describes or adds more information about a verb, an adjective, or another adverb. It tells us how, when, or where something happens. Adverbs often end in -ly, although not all words that end in -ly are adverbs. In this case, the correct answer is adverb because it fits the given definition and pattern.

    A prepositional phrase is a group of words that starts with a preposition and ends with a noun or pronoun. It functions as an adjective or adverb in a sentence, providing additional information about the subject or the action. It can indicate location, time, manner, or purpose. For example, in the sentence "The cat is on the table," the prepositional phrase "on the table" describes the location of the cat.
