    Correct Answer
    A. Abstract
    Explanation
    An abstract noun is a type of noun that expresses strong feelings or emotions. It refers to something that cannot be perceived by the senses, such as love, happiness, or anger. These nouns represent intangible concepts or ideas, rather than physical objects. In contrast, concrete nouns refer to things that can be seen, touched, or experienced, while proper nouns refer to specific names of people, places, or things, and common nouns refer to general names of people, places, or things.

In this case, the question is asking for the words that are used to tell what kind, which one, and how many in reference to the noun, and adjectives fit this description perfectly.

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. They,Their,Them, Their
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "They,Their,Them, Their". In this sentence, the missing possessive pronouns should refer to the three children in the Andres family. "They" is used to refer to the children as the subject of the sentence, "Their" is used to show possession, and "Them" is used as the object of the verb "treat". "She" is not appropriate in this context because it does not refer to the children.

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. A specific person, place, or thing; capitalized
    Explanation
    A proper noun is a specific person, place, or thing. It is capitalized to distinguish it from common nouns, which are general names for people, places, or things. By capitalizing proper nouns, we give them importance and make them stand out in a sentence. This helps in identifying and distinguishing them from other words in a sentence.
