    • D.

      When subject and object change position, the meaning of the sentence changes

    Correct Answer
    D. When subject and object change position, the meaning of the sentence changes
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that when the subject and object change position in a sentence, the meaning of the sentence changes. This is evident in the two sentences given as examples: "The lizard ate the fly" and "The fly ate the lizard." In the first sentence, the lizard is the subject and the fly is the object, indicating that the lizard is performing the action of eating the fly. In the second sentence, the fly is the subject and the lizard is the object, indicating that the fly is performing the action of eating the lizard. This change in subject and object position alters the meaning of the sentence.

    ……… of my answers were correct, only two were wrong.

    • A.

      Much

    • B.

      Most

    • C.

      More

    • D.

      Few

    Correct Answer
    B. Most
    Explanation
    The word "most" is the correct answer because it indicates a larger number or amount. The sentence states that out of all the answers given, only two were wrong, implying that the majority of the answers were correct. "Much" and "more" do not accurately convey this idea, while "few" suggests a smaller number of correct answers. Therefore, "most" is the best fit for the sentence.

    Correct pronunciation of individual sound is related to_________________

    • A.

      Accuracy

    • B.

      Fluency

    • C.

      Both accuracy & fluency

    • D.

      Neither accuracy nor fluency

    Correct Answer
    A. Accuracy
    Explanation
    The correct pronunciation of individual sounds is related to accuracy. Accuracy refers to the ability to produce sounds correctly and pronounce words accurately. In order to have good pronunciation, one needs to focus on accuracy and ensure that each sound is pronounced correctly. Fluency, on the other hand, refers to the smoothness and flow of speech, which may not necessarily depend on accurate pronunciation of individual sounds. Therefore, accuracy is the key factor in achieving correct pronunciation.

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    The structure ‘he goes to school’ is often produced by learners due to 

    • A.

      Failure of intelligence

    • B.

      Mother tongue interference

    • C.

      Over generalization of rules

    • D.

      Wrong teaching

    Correct Answer
    C. Over generalization of rules
    Explanation
    The structure "he goes to school" is often produced by learners due to overgeneralization of rules. This means that learners apply a grammatical rule too broadly, assuming that it applies in all situations, even when it doesn't. In this case, learners may mistakenly apply the rule for forming present simple tense ("he goes") to express the concept of attending school, even though a different structure ("he attends school") should be used. This error is common among language learners who are still in the process of acquiring the language and may not have fully internalized all the rules and exceptions yet.

      Traditional grammar

    • B.

      Modern grammar

    • C.

      Pedagogic grammar

    • D.

      No grammar is needed

    Correct Answer
    C. Pedagogic grammar
    Explanation
    Pedagogic grammar is the best grammar that a teacher can use for teaching grammar. This type of grammar focuses on the practical aspects of language learning and teaching, providing learners with the necessary tools and strategies to effectively understand and use grammar in real-life situations. Unlike traditional grammar, which may be more focused on rules and structures, pedagogic grammar takes into account the needs and abilities of the learners, providing them with meaningful and relevant examples and exercises. Modern grammar, on the other hand, may refer to current linguistic theories and research, but it may not necessarily be the most suitable approach for teaching grammar to students.

    The study of meaning in a language is known as semantics, not syntax. Syntax refers to the study of the structure and arrangement of words and phrases to create meaningful sentences. Semantics, on the other hand, focuses on the meaning of words, phrases, and sentences in a language.
