    Explanation
    Delaware is a proper noun because it is the name of a specific place, a state in the United States. Proper nouns refer to specific people, places, or things and are always capitalized. In contrast, "kitchen," "sweater," and "boy" are common nouns because they do not refer to specific individuals or places.

    Which word below is a neuter noun?

    • A.

      Man

      Woman

    • C.

      Bride

    • D.

      Teacher

    Correct Answer
    D. Teacher
    Explanation
    The word "teacher" is a neuter noun because it does not have a gender-specific form. Unlike "man" and "woman," which are masculine and feminine nouns respectively, "teacher" can be used to refer to both male and female individuals in a gender-neutral way. Therefore, "teacher" is the correct answer as a neuter noun.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which word below is the correct plural form of the word: bus

    • A.

      Buss

    • B.

      Buses

    • C.

      Busies

    Correct Answer
    B. Buses
    Explanation
    The correct plural form of the word "bus" is "buses." This is because when forming the plural of a noun that ends in a consonant + "us," we usually add "-es" to the end. Therefore, "buses" is the correct plural form in this case.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which word below is the correct plural form for the word: baby

    • A.

      Babys

    • B.

      Babyes

    • C.

      Babies

    Correct Answer
    C. Babies
    Explanation
    The correct plural form for the word "baby" is "babies." In English, when a noun ends in a consonant followed by a "y," the "y" is usually changed to "i" before adding "es" to form the plural. Therefore, "babies" is the correct plural form of "baby."

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Which is the correct plural form for the word : hero

    • A.

      Heroes

    • B.

      Heros

    • C.

      Heroies

    Correct Answer
    A. Heroes
    Explanation
    The correct plural form for the word "hero" is "heroes." In English, when forming the plural of a noun ending in "o," we usually add "es" to the end. This is the case with "hero," where the "o" is replaced by "oes" to create "heroes." The other options, "heros" and "heroies," are incorrect plural forms and do not follow the standard rules of English grammar.

    Rate this question:

  • 10.

    • A.

      A flock of sheep

    • B.

      A flock of horses

    • C.

      A flock of cows

    Correct Answer
    A. A flock of sheep
    Explanation
    A collective noun is a word that refers to a group of people, animals, or things. In this case, "a flock" is the collective noun as it refers to a group of sheep.

    Rate this question:

  • 11.

    • A.

      A school of horses

    • B.

      A school on donkeys

    • C.

      A school of fish

    Correct Answer
    C. A school of fish
    Explanation
    The correct collective noun form is "a school of fish." This is because "school" is commonly used to refer to a group of fish swimming together. The word "school" in this context does not refer to an educational institution but rather to a group or gathering of fish.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Which word below is a masculine noun?

    • A.

      Girl

    • B.

      Shoe

    • C.

      Waitress

    • D.

      Gentleman

    Correct Answer
    D. Gentleman
    Explanation
    The word "gentleman" is a masculine noun because it refers to a man who is polite, well-mannered, and behaves in a refined way. It is a term used to describe a man who possesses qualities such as chivalry, courtesy, and respect. In contrast, "girl" is a feminine noun, "shoe" is a gender-neutral noun, and "waitress" is a feminine noun as well. Therefore, "gentleman" is the only option that fits the criteria of being a masculine noun.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    What is a noun?

    • A.

      An action

    • B.

      Describes something

    • C.

      A person, place, thing, or idea

    Correct Answer
    C. A person, place, thing, or idea
    Explanation
    A noun is a word that represents a person, place, thing, or idea. It is a part of speech that is used to name or identify something. Nouns can refer to people (e.g., teacher, John), places (e.g., city, park), things (e.g., chair, book), or abstract concepts (e.g., love, freedom). They are essential in constructing sentences and providing clarity in communication.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Which is the correct plural form of the word: computer

    • A.

      Computers

    • B.

      Computeries

    • C.

      Computeres

    • D.

      Computer

    Correct Answer
    A. Computers
    Explanation
    The correct plural form of the word "computer" is "computers." The word "computeries" does not exist, "computeres" is not a valid plural form, and "computer" is the singular form of the word. Therefore, the correct answer is "computers."

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Add the correct noun form to the sentence: girls, girles, girlies. The________went to the movies.

    Correct Answer
    girls,girles,girlies
    Explanation
    The correct noun form to complete the sentence "The [Blank] went to the movies" is "girls." This is because "girls" is the plural form of the noun "girl," and it is the most appropriate choice to refer to a group of female individuals going to the movies. "Girles" and "girlies" are not recognized as standard English words, so they would not be the correct noun forms to use in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Add the correct noun form to the sentence: sheeps, flock of sheep, pair of sheeps.  We saw a ________in the field.

    Correct Answer
    sheeps, flock of sheep, pair of sheeps
    Explanation
    The correct noun form to use in the sentence is "flock of sheep." "Sheeps" is an incorrect plural form of "sheep," and "pair of sheeps" is also incorrect as "sheep" does not change in plural form. Therefore, the sentence should be "We saw a flock of sheep in the field."

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    Which of the words is NOT a feminine noun?

    • A.

      Actress

    • B.

      Grandmother

    • C.

      Niece

    • D.

      Grandson

    Correct Answer
    D. Grandson
    Explanation
    The word "grandson" is not a feminine noun because it refers to a male grandchild. In contrast, "actress," "grandmother," and "niece" are all feminine nouns as they refer to females.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    Which word is the proper form for the word: leaf

    • A.

      Leafs

    • B.

      Leaves

    • C.

      Leavies

    Correct Answer
    B. Leaves
    Explanation
    The word "leaves" is the proper form for the word "leaf" because it follows the standard rule of adding "-es" to form the plural of nouns ending in "-f" or "-fe." In this case, the "f" in "leaf" is changed to "v" and then "es" is added, resulting in "leaves." This is a common spelling pattern in English.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    Proper nouns are always capitalized.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Proper nouns refer to specific names of people, places, or things, and they are always capitalized. This is because capitalizing proper nouns helps to distinguish them from common nouns, which are not capitalized. By capitalizing proper nouns, we give them importance and indicate that they are unique and specific entities. Therefore, the statement "Proper nouns are always capitalized" is true.
