    Combine the following two sentences together using a relative clause.I love going to cities. I can meet lots of people there.Don't forget that your answer is case-sensitive and remember to use the correct punctuation in and at the end of the sentence.

    Correct Answer
    I love going to cities where I can meet lots of people.
    Explanation
    With these two sentences, we need to use "where" for the relative pronoun because we are talking about location and we know that as a result of the "there" at the end of the second sentence.

    C. Peter's grandmother, who fell last week, is lucky she didn't break her hip.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Peter's grandmother, who fell last week, is lucky she didn't break her hip." This sentence best matches the two independent clauses because it provides additional information about Peter's grandmother falling last week and emphasizes her luck in not breaking her hip.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "sleeping (bag), gardening (gloves), shopping (bag), wedding (dress)". These examples are all purpose adjectives because they describe the intended use or function of the noun they modify. In this case, the adjectives are used to describe the specific type of bag or gloves that are used for sleeping, gardening, shopping, and a wedding dress.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I sat next to a man on the subway whom I'd met on a trip to Rome last summer." This sentence correctly uses the relative pronoun "whom" to refer to the man and connects the two independent clauses by providing additional information about the man's identity.

    Correct Answer
    D. I love water parks where I always have so much fun.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I love water parks where I always have so much fun." This sentence correctly combines the two independent clauses by using the relative pronoun "where" to connect the idea of having fun at water parks. The use of "where" indicates a location and shows the relationship between the two clauses. The other options either have incorrect word choices or unnecessary repetition of words.

Therefore, the statement that a determiner can be an article or a number is true.

    Combine the following sentence using a relative clause. Jack has two dogs. Jack lives next door. (Clue! You only know one man named Jack.)

    Correct Answer
    Jack, who has two dogs, lives next door.
    Explanation
    The sentence combines the two pieces of information given about Jack. It uses a relative clause ("who has two dogs") to provide additional information about Jack, specifically that he has two dogs. The relative clause is set off by commas and is placed after the noun it modifies, "Jack." The sentence then continues with the main clause, "lives next door," to complete the combined sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Which of these adjectives is a determiner?

    • C.

      Their

    • D.

      Broken

    Correct Answer
    C. Their
    Explanation
    Their is a determiner because it is used to indicate possession or ownership. It is used before a noun to show that something belongs to or is associated with a group of people or things previously mentioned or easily identified. In this case, "their" is used to show possession or ownership by a group of people.
