Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Thomas (walk)________________________ in the park when he got hit by a rock

    Explanation
    The correct answer for this question is "was walking". This is because the sentence is in the past tense and the action of walking was ongoing at the time when Thomas got hit by a rock. The past continuous tense "was walking" is used to describe an action that was happening in the past at a specific moment.

    Dave was reading Fahrenheit 451 when his girlfriend (call) _____________________him

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "called" because the verb "call" needs to be in the past tense to match the past tense of "was reading." Therefore, the correct form of the verb is "called."

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    The accountant of all the companies (is/are)_________________ very busy

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "is" because "accountant" is a singular noun and requires a singular verb form. In this sentence, "is" agrees with the subject "accountant" and indicates that the accountant of all the companies is very busy.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Everyone (is/are/was)___________ working very hard

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "is". In this sentence, "everyone" is the subject, which is a singular pronoun. Therefore, the verb "is" should be used to agree with the singular subject. "Was" is not the correct answer because it is past tense and does not agree with the present tense of the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Most of the people (is/are)__________ tired

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "are" because when referring to "most of the people," we are talking about a plural group of individuals. Therefore, we use the plural form of the verb "to be," which is "are."

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Most of the water (are/is)______________ muddy

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "is" because the subject "most of the water" is singular, so it requires a singular verb form. In this case, "is" is the correct form of the verb to agree with the subject.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Everyone (was/were)________________ very happy to see Sandy

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "was" because the subject "everyone" is singular and requires a singular verb form. In this sentence, "everyone" is referring to a group of people, but it is still considered as a singular entity. Therefore, we use the singular verb form "was" to agree with the subject.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Many (is/are)____________ happy to play soccer

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "are" because the subject "many" is plural, indicating that there are multiple individuals who are happy to play soccer. Therefore, the verb "are" should be used to agree with the plural subject.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Either the boys or Kenny (have/has)_____________ to do it today

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "has" because when using "either/or" to connect two subjects, the verb agrees with the subject closest to it. In this case, "Kenny" is the subject closest to the verb, and since "Kenny" is singular, the verb should also be singular, which is "has".

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Neither Jude nor the girls (is/are) _____________________ singing this week

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "are" because when using the conjunction "neither...nor," the verb should agree with the noun closest to it. In this case, "the girls" is closer to the verb "are" than "Jude," so we use the plural form of the verb.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    The group (is/are) ___________________arguing about where to go

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "are" because the subject "group" is plural, indicating that there are multiple individuals in the group. Therefore, the verb "are" should be used to agree with the plural subject.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    The home team (is/are)____________ winning the game

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "is" because when referring to a team as a single unit, we use the singular form of the verb "to be." In this case, "is" is the correct form to indicate that the home team is currently winning the game.
