    • D.

      Doctor Diseases

    Correct Answer
    A. Dog
    Explanation
    A proper noun is a specific name used for an individual person, place, or organization. In this case, "Dog" is not a proper noun as it does not refer to a specific dog, but rather a general term for the animal. "Starbucks," "Mrs. Thames," and "Doctor Diseases" are all examples of proper nouns as they refer to specific places, individuals, or organizations.

  • 3. 

    True or false? A proper noun used as a adjective is a proper adjective.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A proper noun used as an adjective is indeed referred to as a proper adjective. This is because a proper adjective is formed by using a proper noun to describe a noun. Proper adjectives are capitalized, just like proper nouns, and they provide specific information about the noun they modify. For example, in the phrase "French cuisine," "French" is a proper adjective derived from the proper noun "France."

    Rate this question:

    Proper Noun:                        Proper Adjective:                          

    • A.

      Right, Wrong

    • B.

      English, Macys

    • C.

      Treasurer, Fast

    • D.

      Macys, English

    Correct Answer
    D. Macys, English
    Explanation
    The given answer is correct because "Macys" is a proper noun and "English" is a proper adjective. A proper noun is a specific name of a person, place, or thing, and "Macys" is a specific name of a department store. A proper adjective is derived from a proper noun and describes a specific characteristic of the noun, and "English" is derived from the proper noun "England" and describes something related to England. Therefore, "Macys" and "English" are both examples of proper nouns and proper adjectives.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Proper Noun:                                 Proper Adjective:                                  

    • A.

      I, Tall

    • B.

      Houston, French

    • C.

      French, Houston

    • D.

      French, Toast

    Correct Answer
    B. Houston, French
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Houston, French" because "Houston" is a proper noun and "French" is a proper adjective. A proper noun is a specific name for a person, place, or thing, and "Houston" is the name of a city. A proper adjective is derived from a proper noun and describes a characteristic or attribute of that noun, and "French" describes something related to France. Therefore, "Houston, French" is the correct pairing of a proper noun and a proper adjective.

  • 6. 

    Which sentence is using a proper adjective correctly?

    • A.

      I just went to an Italian restaurant.

    • B.

      I just got Home from Italy.

    • C.

      My favorite type of ice cream is Chocolate.

    • D.

      I love my dog her name is Peanut Butter.

    Correct Answer
    A. I just went to an Italian restaurant.
    Explanation
    The sentence "I just went to an Italian restaurant" is using a proper adjective correctly because it is describing the noun "restaurant" with the nationality or origin of the cuisine, which is Italian. Proper adjectives are derived from proper nouns and are used to describe a specific person, place, or thing. In this case, the proper adjective "Italian" is correctly used to describe the type of restaurant.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Is the sentence ''The blue car drove by the Seafood restaurant" using a proper adjective correctly?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The sentence "The blue car drove by the Seafood restaurant" is using a proper noun (Seafood restaurant) instead of a proper adjective. A proper adjective describes a proper noun, but in this case, "Seafood restaurant" is a specific place or name, not an adjective. Therefore, the sentence is not using a proper adjective correctly.

They are used to provide specific details or characteristics about a person, place, or thing. By using a proper adjective, we can convey a more precise and specific description of the noun in question.
