    Fill in the blanks using correct grammar: Kennedy _______ (rode, ride) a bike on Tuesday. Kennedy ______ (like, likes) riding bikes.

    Correct Answer
    rode
    likes
    Explanation
    Kennedy rode a bike on Tuesday indicates that Kennedy engaged in the action of riding a bike on that specific day. The use of "rode" is the correct past tense form of the verb "ride" in this sentence. Additionally, the statement "Kennedy likes riding bikes" suggests that Kennedy has a preference or enjoyment for the activity of riding bikes. Therefore, the correct form of the verb "like" to agree with the subject "Kennedy" is "likes."

    Determine whether the following statement is true or false: Common nouns are always capitalized in a sentence.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Common nouns are not always capitalized in a sentence. While proper nouns, such as names of people or places, are always capitalized, improper nouns, which refer to a common noun, do not necessarily need to be capitalized. For example, words like "boy" or "city" can be used as improper nouns when referring to a specific boy or city, but they do not need to be capitalized unless they begin a sentence.

    • A.

      "Marie" is not capitalized in the first sentence. "Their" should be replaced with "there" in the second sentence. "Athletic" should not be capitalized in the third sentence. There should be a comma between "and" and "George" in the fourth sentence. "To" should be replaced with "two" in the fifth sentence.

    • B.

      There are no errors in this paragraph.

    • C.

      "Marie" is not capitalized in the first sentence. "Their" should be replaced with "they're" in the second sentence. "Athletic" should not be capitalized in the third sentence. "To" should be replaced with "two" in the fifth sentence.

    • D.

      "Best" and "friends" should be combined to make "bestfriends" in the first sentence. "Athletic" should not be capitalized in the third sentence.

    Correct Answer
    C. "Marie" is not capitalized in the first sentence. "Their" should be replaced with "they're" in the second sentence. "Athletic" should not be capitalized in the third sentence. "To" should be replaced with "two" in the fifth sentence.
    Explanation
    The given answer correctly identifies the errors in the paragraph. "Marie" is not capitalized in the first sentence, "Their" should be replaced with "they're" in the second sentence, as it is meant to say “they are”. "Athletic" should not be capitalized in the third sentence, as it is not a proper noun, and "To" should be replaced with "two" in the fifth sentence. These errors involve capitalization, incorrect word usage, and spelling mistakes.
