Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Do you know the man ______ brought me the book?

    Correct Answer
    who, that
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "who, that". In this question, we are asking for information about the man who brought the book. "Who" is used to refer to a person, so it is the appropriate choice in this context. "That" is not suitable because it is used to refer to things or objects, not people. Therefore, "who" is the correct pronoun to use in this sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Are you coming to ______ Christmas party?

    • A.

      There

    • B.

      Their

    Correct Answer
    B. Their
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "their" because it is used to show possession. In this sentence, it is asking if the person being addressed is coming to someone else's Christmas party. "There" is used to indicate a place, and it does not make sense in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    I will meet you _____.

    • A.

      There

    • B.

      Their

    Correct Answer
    A. There
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "there". In this context, "there" is used as an adverb to indicate the location where the speaker will meet the person they are addressing. "Their" is a possessive pronoun used to show ownership, so it would not be appropriate in this sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    There is hardly any _______ between them.

    • A.

      Different

    • B.

      Difference

    Correct Answer
    B. Difference
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "difference". In the given sentence, the word "hardly" suggests that there is very little or almost no "difference" between the two subjects being compared. The word "difference" is a noun that accurately completes the sentence and conveys the intended meaning.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Indsæt verbum i nutid:Peter ______ (love) Maria.

    Correct Answer
    loves
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "loves." In this sentence, we are asked to insert a verb in the present tense. The subject of the sentence is "Peter," and the object is "Maria." To match the subject and maintain subject-verb agreement, we need to use the third-person singular form of the verb. Therefore, "loves" is the correct choice as it agrees with the singular subject "Peter."

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    I hate companies ________ ________ not protect the environment

    • A.

      Which, does

    • B.

      Which, do

    • C.

      Who, does

    • D.

      Who, do

    Correct Answer
    B. Which, do
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "which, do". In this sentence, we are referring to companies, which is a plural noun. Therefore, we need to use the plural form "do" to agree with the subject. Additionally, "which" is used to introduce a relative clause that provides additional information about the companies.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Hvilket af nedenstående er det foreløbige grundled?

    • A.

      Then

    • B.

      This

    • C.

      There

    • D.

      I

    Correct Answer
    C. There
    Explanation
    The word "There" is the subject of the sentence and is functioning as the preliminary subject. It is used to introduce the existence or presence of something. In this case, it is indicating the existence of a preliminary subject.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Difference tilhører hvilken ordklasse?

    • A.

      Navneord / substantiv

    • B.

      Udsagnsord / verbum

    • C.

      Tillægsord / adjektiv

    • D.

      Biord / adverbium

    Correct Answer
    A. Navneord / substantiv
    Explanation
    The question is asking about the word "difference" and which part of speech it belongs to. The correct answer is "navneord / substantiv" which means noun in Danish.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Det foreløbige grundled bruges ikke på dansk.

    • A.

      Sandt

    • B.

      Falsk

    Correct Answer
    B. Falsk
    Explanation
    In Danish, the "det foreløbige grundled" is a term used to refer to the subject of a sentence that is placed before the verb. However, this term is not used in Danish grammar. Therefore, the statement "Det foreløbige grundled bruges ikke på dansk" (The preliminary subject is not used in Danish) is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Hvornår skrives titler (fx president) med stort begyndelsesbogstav på engelsk?

    • A.

      Altid

    • C.

      Når der er tale om en særligt vigtig person.

    • D.

      Når der er tale om en bestemt person, som er præsident.

    Correct Answer
    D. Når der er tale om en bestemt person, som er præsident.
    Explanation
    When referring to a specific person who holds the title of president, it is written with a capital letter at the beginning. This is because it is a proper noun and is used to indicate a specific individual who holds a specific position.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Adjektiver beskriver ...?

    • A.

      Udsagnsord / verber

    • B.

      Navneord / substantiver

    • C.

      Biord / adverbier

    • D.

      Kan beskrive alle ordklasser

    Correct Answer
    B. Navneord / substantiver
    Explanation
    Adjectives describe nouns or pronouns, which are types of nouns. They provide more information about the noun or pronoun by describing its qualities, characteristics, or attributes. Adjectives can describe different types of nouns, including common nouns, proper nouns, and pronouns. Therefore, the correct answer is "Navneord / substantiver."

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Vælg den korrekte oversættelse af den danske sætning nedenfor.Vi bor i en større villa i en af Danmarks større byer.

    • A.

      We live in a bigger house in one of Denmark's larger towns.

    • B.

      We live in a bigger house in one of Denmark's large towns.

    • C.

      We live in a big house in one of Denmark's large towns.

    Correct Answer
    C. We live in a big house in one of Denmark's large towns.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "We live in a big house in one of Denmark's large towns." This is because the sentence states that "Vi bor i en større villa," which translates to "We live in a bigger house." The word "større" means "bigger" or "larger." Additionally, the sentence states "i en af Danmarks større byer," which translates to "in one of Denmark's large towns." Therefore, the correct translation is "We live in a big house in one of Denmark's large towns."

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Sæt flueben ved de ord, hvis ubestemte artikel er "an".Der er flere rigtige svarmuligheder.

    • A.

      University

    • B.

      Apple

    • C.

      Elephant

    • D.

      Hour

    • E.

      Horse

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Apple
    C. Elephant
    D. Hour
    Explanation
    The words "apple," "elephant," and "hour" all have a vowel sound at the beginning, which is why the indefinite article "an" is used instead of "a." The words "university" and "horse" do not have a vowel sound at the beginning, so the indefinite article "a" is used instead.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Sæt flueben ved de possessive pronominer (ejestedord).Der er flere rigtige svarmuligheder.

    • A.

      My

    • B.

      This

    • C.

      Myself

    • D.

      Its

    • E.

      Their

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. My
    D. Its
    E. Their
    Explanation
    The correct answer options "my, its, their" are all possessive pronouns. "My" is used to show ownership or possession by the speaker, "its" is used to show ownership or possession by a singular object or animal, and "their" is used to show ownership or possession by multiple people or things. These pronouns indicate that something belongs to someone or something else.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Sæt flueben ved de personlige pronominer (personlige stedord).Der er flere rigtige svarmuligheder.

    • B.

      Who

    • C.

      Your

    • D.

      They

    • E.

      We

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. I
    D. They
    E. We
    Explanation
    The correct answer includes the pronouns "I," "they," and "we." These pronouns are all examples of personal pronouns, which are used to refer to people or things. "I" is used when referring to oneself as the subject of a sentence, "they" is used when referring to a group of people or things as the subject of a sentence, and "we" is used when including oneself as part of a group as the subject of a sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Sæt flueben ved de demonstrative pronominer (påpegende stedord).Der er flere rigtige svarmuligheder.

    • A.

      We

    • B.

      Some

    • C.

      This

    • D.

      Where

    • E.

      Those

    Correct Answer(s)
    C. This
    E. Those
    Explanation
    The correct answer options "this" and "those" are demonstrative pronouns. "This" is used to refer to something that is close to the speaker, while "those" is used to refer to something that is far from both the speaker and the listener. These pronouns help in pointing out specific objects or people in a sentence. The other options "we", "some", and "where" are not demonstrative pronouns.

    Rate this question:

  • 17.

    • A.

    • B.

      Whose

    • C.

      Them

    • D.

      Herself

    • E.

      Which

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Who
    B. Whose
    E. Which
    Explanation
    The correct answer choices are "who," "whose," and "which." These are all examples of interrogative pronouns, which are used to ask questions. "Who" is used to ask about people, "whose" is used to ask about possession, and "which" is used to ask about things or choices. These pronouns are all appropriate for asking questions and gathering information.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    Sæt flueben ved de refleksive stedord (tilbagevisende stedord).Der er flere rigtige svarmuligheder.

    • A.

      Themselves

    • B.

      Their

    • C.

      Himself

    • D.

      He

    • E.

      I

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Themselves
    C. Himself
    Explanation
    The correct answer options, "themselves" and "himself," are examples of reflexive pronouns. Reflexive pronouns are used when the subject and the object of a sentence refer to the same person or thing. In this case, "themselves" and "himself" are used to refer back to the subject of the sentence. The other answer options, "their," "He," and "I," are not reflexive pronouns as they do not reflect back to the subject.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    Sæt flueben ved de relative pronominer (henførende stedord).Der er flere rigtige svarmuligheder.

    • A.

      Themselves

    • B.

      That

    • C.

      They

    • D.

      Who

    • E.

      Which

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. That
    D. Who
    E. Which
    Explanation
    The correct answer options, "that," "who," and "which," are all relative pronouns used to introduce relative clauses in a sentence. Relative pronouns are used to connect a dependent clause to a main clause, and they refer back to a noun or pronoun mentioned earlier in the sentence. In this case, these pronouns can be used to provide additional information about a noun or pronoun mentioned earlier in the sentence. The option "themselves" is not a relative pronoun and does not fit the criteria of the question.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    Sæt flueben ved de indefinitte pronominer (ubestemte stedord).Der er flere rigtige svarmuligheder.

    • A.

    • B.

      Him

    • C.

      Some

    • D.

      You

    • E.

      Any

    Correct Answer(s)
    C. Some
    E. Any
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "some, any" because these are examples of indefinite pronouns. Indefinite pronouns are used when we don't want to specify a particular person or thing. "Some" is used in positive sentences to refer to an unspecified quantity or number, while "any" is used in negative sentences or questions to refer to an unspecified quantity or number.

    Rate this question:

  • 21. 

    A lot of leaves __________ fallen.

    Correct Answer(s)
    have
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "have" because the subject "a lot of leaves" is plural, and therefore requires the plural form of the verb "have" to agree with it.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    Everybody _____________ (to be) here today.

    Correct Answer(s)
    is
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "is" because the sentence is in the present tense and the subject "everybody" is singular. In the present tense, the verb "to be" conjugates as "is" for singular subjects.

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    The binoculars ____________ (to be, nutid) on the shelf.

    Correct Answer(s)
    are
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "are" because the sentence is in the present tense and the subject "binoculars" is plural. In English, when the subject is plural, the verb should also be in the plural form.

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    Ligefrem ordstilling er når ...?

    • A.

      Verballeddet står før subjektet (udsagnsled før grundled)

    • B.

      Subjektet står før verballeddet (grundled før udsagnsled)

    Correct Answer
    B. Subjektet står før verballeddet (grundled før udsagnsled)
    Explanation
    Ligefrem ordstilling refers to the word order in a sentence where the subject comes before the verb phrase. In this case, "grundled før udsagnsled" means that the subject (grundled) is placed before the verb phrase (udsagnsled). This is the correct answer because it accurately describes the word order in ligefrem ordstilling.

    Rate this question:

  • 25. 

    Hvilken type ordstilling er der tale om i følgende sætning:I bought a bike yesterday.

    • A.

      Ligefrem ordstilling

    • B.

      Omvendt ordstilling

    Correct Answer
    A. Ligefrem ordstilling
    Explanation
    The given sentence "I bought a bike yesterday" follows the structure of a typical subject-verb-object sentence, where the subject ("I") comes before the verb ("bought"), which is followed by the object ("a bike"). This is known as "ligefrem ordstilling" or "direct word order" in Danish.

    Rate this question:

  • 26. 

    Hvilken type ordstilling er der tale om i følgende sætning:Never have I heard anything so stupid.

    • A.

      Ligefrem ordstilling

    • B.

      Omvendt ordstilling

    Correct Answer
    B. Omvendt ordstilling
    Explanation
    The given sentence "Never have I heard anything so stupid" is an example of inverted word order, also known as "omvendt ordstilling" in Danish. In this type of word order, the subject and the auxiliary verb are inverted, with the auxiliary verb appearing before the subject. This is commonly used in English for emphasis or to create a more dramatic effect.

    • C.

      Efter verbet / udsagnsordet

    • D.

      Enten først eller sidst i sætningen

    Correct Answer
    D. Enten først eller sidst i sætningen
    Explanation
    Adverbielle udtryk som "later in the evening" kan placeres enten først eller sidst i sætningen. Dette giver fleksibilitet i sætningsstrukturen og tillader forfatteren at skabe variation og betoninger i teksten. Placeringen af det adverbielle udtryk afhænger af forfatterens intention og konteksten for sætningen.

    • A.

      Tidspræpositioner

    • B.

      Stedspræpositioner

    Correct Answer
    A. Tidspræpositioner
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Tidspræpositioner" because the question is asking for examples of time prepositions in Danish. The options "On, at, in, for, during" are all examples of time prepositions, indicating specific points in time or durations.

    Rate this question:

  • 30. 

    Oversæt "han ryger" i betydningen han er ryger.

    Correct Answer
    He smokes, He smokes.
    Explanation
    The given correct answer accurately translates the phrase "han ryger" into English as "He smokes." The repetition of the phrase "He smokes" emphasizes the fact that the person being referred to is a smoker.

    Rate this question:

  • 31. 

    Oversæt "han ryger" i betydningen han er i færd med at ryge.

    Correct Answer
    He is smoking.
    He is smoking
    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "He is smoking." This is because the phrase "han ryger" in Danish translates to "he is smoking" in English. The verb "ryger" indicates the present continuous tense, which means that the action of smoking is currently happening. Therefore, the correct translation is "He is smoking."

      Walked

    • C.

      Walking

    Correct Answer
    B. Walked
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "walked" because it is the past tense form of the verb "walk." In this question, we are asked to choose the short form, which refers to the past tense. Therefore, "walked" is the correct choice.

    Rate this question:

  • 33. 

    Vælg den lange tillægsform.

    • A.

      Talk

    • B.

      Talked

    • C.

      Talking

    Correct Answer
    C. Talking
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "talking" because the question asks for the long form of the verb. In this case, the long form of "talk" is "talking".

    Rate this question:

  • 34. 

    Hvordan bøjes "to dream" i kort tillægsform?

    • A.

      Dreamed

      Dreamt

    • C.

      Begge ovenstående bøjninger er rigtige

    Correct Answer
    C. Begge ovenstående bøjninger er rigtige
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Begge ovenstående bøjninger er rigtige" (Both of the above conjugations are correct). The question asks for the short form of the verb "to dream" in Danish. In Danish, the verb "to dream" can be conjugated as both "dreamed" and "dreamt." Therefore, both options are correct.

    Rate this question:

  • 35. 

    Er nedenstående sætning aktiv eller passiv?He ate an apple.

    • A.

      Aktiv

    • B.

      Passiv

    Correct Answer
    A. Aktiv
    Explanation
    The given sentence "He ate an apple" is in the active voice. In an active sentence, the subject performs the action. In this case, the subject "he" is performing the action of eating the apple.

    Rate this question:

  • 36. 

    Er nedenstående sætning aktiv eller passiv?The dog was hit by the car.

    • A.

      Aktiv

    • B.

      Passiv

    Correct Answer
    B. Passiv
    Explanation
    The given sentence "The dog was hit by the car" is in the passive voice. This is because the subject of the sentence (the dog) is receiving the action (being hit) rather than performing it. The sentence structure follows the pattern of "subject + was + past participle + by + agent (optional)". In this case, the dog is the subject, "was hit" is the past participle verb phrase, and "by the car" indicates the agent responsible for the action.

    Rate this question:

  • 37. 

    Der skal ofte være komma foran "that.

    • A.

      Sandt

    • B.

      Falsk

    Correct Answer
    B. Falsk
    Explanation
    The statement is false because there is not always a need for a comma before the word "that". The use of a comma before "that" depends on the specific sentence structure and the intended meaning. In some cases, a comma may be used before "that" to indicate a pause or to separate clauses, but it is not a universal rule.

    Rate this question:

  • 38. 

    Der er én fejl i nedenstående sætning. Hvilken fejltype er der tale om?*I bought four furnitures yesterday.

    • A.

      Genitiv / ejefald

    • B.

      Kongruens

    • C.

      Utællelighed

    • D.

      Bøjningsfejl

    Correct Answer
    C. Utællelighed
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Utællelighed" (uncountability). The error in the sentence is the use of "four furnitures" instead of "four pieces of furniture." The word "furniture" is an uncountable noun in English and cannot be used in the plural form without a determiner like "pieces of" or "items of."

    Rate this question:

  • 39. 

    Der er én fejl i nedenstående sætning. Hvilken fejltype er der tale om?*She had chosed to write it down. 

    • A.

    • B.

      Uregelmæssigt verbum / udsagnsord

    • C.

      Genitiv

    • D.

      Utællelighed

    Correct Answer
    B. Uregelmæssigt verbum / udsagnsord
    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "Uregelmæssigt verbum / udsagnsord". This is because the verb "chosed" is not the correct past tense form of "choose". The correct past tense form is "chose". Therefore, the error in the sentence is a irregular verb form.

    Rate this question:

  • 40. 

    Der er én fejl i nedenstående sætning. Hvilken fejltype er der tale om?*She no longer organize things like she used to.

    • A.

      Utællelighed

    • B.

      Genitiv

    • C.

      Bøjningsfejl

    • D.

      Kongruens

    Correct Answer
    D. Kongruens
    Explanation
    The given sentence "She no longer organize things like she used to" contains a subject-verb agreement error. The subject "she" is singular, but the verb "organize" is in the plural form. The correct verb form should be "organizes" to match the singular subject. This error is known as a "kongruens" error, which refers to the lack of agreement between the subject and verb in a sentence.

    Rate this question:

    • C.

      Adverbium/adjektiv (biord/tillægsord)

    • D.

      Bøjningsfejl

    Correct Answer
    C. Adverbium/adjektiv (biord/tillægsord)
    Explanation
    The error in the given sentence is the incorrect use of the word "typically" instead of "typical". "Typically" is an adverb, while "typical" is an adjective. In this case, the adjective form should be used to describe the problems that young people have.

    Rate this question:
