Present Simple Grammar Quiz


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Mary __________ at 6:30 am.

    • A.

      Wake up

    • B.

      Wakes up

    Correct Answer
    B. Wakes up
    Explanation
    Mary wakes up at 6:30 am. The verb "wakes up" is used in the third person singular form, which is appropriate for referring to Mary.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    They _______ to class at 8:00 am.

    • A.

      Go

    • B.

      Goes

    Correct Answer
    A. Go
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "go" because when referring to a plural subject, we use the base form of the verb, which is "go." In this sentence, "they" is the subject, indicating more than one person, so we use "go" instead of "goes" which is used for a singular subject.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Joe and Jenny ____________ breakfast at 7:00.

    • A.

      Eat

    • B.

      Eats

    Correct Answer
    A. Eat
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "eat" because when referring to two or more people, the verb "eat" should be used. "Eats" is used when referring to a single person or third person singular pronouns like he, she, or it. Since Joe and Jenny are two people, the correct form is "eat."

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    They _________ dinner together.

    • A.

      Eat

    • B.

      Eats

    Correct Answer
    A. Eat
    Explanation
    The verb "eat" is the correct form to use with the subject "they" in the present tense. "Eats" is the incorrect form as it is used with singular subjects like "he" or "she". Therefore, the correct answer is "eat".

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    I never __________ coffee. 

    • A.

      Drink

    • B.

      Drinks

    Correct Answer
    A. Drink
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "drink" because the verb "never" is used in the sentence, which indicates a negative statement. Therefore, the correct form of the verb "drink" should be used to match the subject "I".

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Henry is very busy. He  ______________ from 9:00am to 9:00pm Monday through Friday.

    • A.

      Work

    • B.

      Works

    Correct Answer
    B. Works
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "works" because when referring to a singular subject, we use the base form of the verb. In this case, "Henry" is the subject and "works" is the correct form of the verb "work" in the third person singular form.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Margie and I _______________ our dog in the park every afternoon. 

    • A.

      Walk

    • B.

      Walks

    Correct Answer
    A. Walk
    Explanation
    In this sentence, "Margie and I" is the subject, which is plural. When the subject is plural, the verb should also be in the plural form. Therefore, the correct verb form to use is "walk" to match the plural subject.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    I __________ to bed at 11:00pm.

    • A.

      Go

    • B.

      Goes

    Correct Answer
    A. Go
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "go" because the subject "I" is singular and requires the verb form "go" in the present tense.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    He ___________ his homework every afternoon.

    • A.

      Do

    • B.

      Does

    Correct Answer
    B. Does
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "does" because it agrees with the subject "He," which is a third-person singular pronoun. In English, when the subject is a singular third-person pronoun, we use "does" as the helping verb in the present simple tense. Therefore, the sentence should be "He does his homework every afternoon."

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Betty ___________ English at Mt. SAC.

    • A.

      Study

    • B.

      Studies

    Correct Answer
    B. Studies
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "studies" because the subject "Betty" is singular, so it requires a singular verb form. In this case, the singular verb form of "study" is "studies".

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    You ___________ to work.

    • A.

      Drive

    • B.

      Drives

    Correct Answer
    A. Drive
    Explanation
    The blank space requires a subject pronoun that matches with the verb "drive". The pronoun "you" is the correct choice as it agrees with the verb form "drive". Therefore, the correct answer is "drive".

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Mary _______________ breakfast.

    • A.

      Don't eat

    • B.

      Doesn't eat

    Correct Answer
    B. Doesn't eat
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "doesn't eat" because the subject of the sentence, Mary, is singular and third person. In English grammar, when the subject is singular and third person (he, she, it), we use the auxiliary verb "does" in negative sentences and questions. Therefore, the correct form is "doesn't eat" to indicate that Mary does not eat breakfast.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    I ______________ yoga.

    • A.

      Don't do

    • B.

      Doesn't do

    Correct Answer
    A. Don't do
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "don't do" because the sentence is in the first person singular form, which requires the use of "do not" as the negative form. Since "I" is the subject, the correct construction is "don't do."

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Chris and I ______________ homework today.

    • A.

      Don't have

    • B.

      Doesn't have

    Correct Answer
    A. Don't have
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "don't have" because when talking about two people, we use the plural form "don't" to indicate that both Chris and I do not have homework. "Doesn't have" is incorrect because it is the singular form and does not match the subject "Chris and I."

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Mary _______________ Chinese. 

    • A.

      Don't speak

    • B.

      Doesn't speak

    Correct Answer
    B. Doesn't speak
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "doesn't speak" because "Mary" is a singular subject, so the verb "speak" needs to be conjugated in the third person singular form, which is "doesn't speak."
