    • E.

      B

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The letter "u" is a vowel because it represents a sound made with an open vocal tract, without any obstruction or closure of the lips, teeth, or tongue. In English, the letter "u" can be found in words like "cup," "cut," and "hut," where it represents the vowel sound /ʌ/.

    The letter "p" is a consonant because it is not a vowel. In English, consonants are all the letters of the alphabet except for the vowels (a, e, i, o, u). The letter "p" is pronounced with a sound made by blocking the airflow with the lips, which is a characteristic of consonant sounds.

    Dog is a noun because it is a common name for a type of domesticated mammal. It is a person, place, thing, or idea, which is the definition of a noun. Running, ran, and pretend are not nouns because they are not names for a person, place, thing, or idea. Running is a verb, ran is the past tense of the verb run, and pretend is a verb as well. Therefore, the correct answer is Dog.

    Explanation
    The word "read" is a verb because it refers to an action or a process of interpreting written or printed material. It represents the act of reading, which is an action performed by someone. The other options, such as "dog," "John," and "teacher," do not indicate any action or process and therefore are not verbs.

    • D.

      Runned

    Correct Answer
    C. Ran
    Explanation
    The word "ran" is in the past tense. It is the past tense form of the verb "run." When we talk about an action that happened in the past, we use the past tense. In this case, "ran" indicates that the action of running has already occurred in the past.

    Rate this question:

      Rang

    • C.

      Ringed

    Correct Answer
    A. Ringing
    Explanation
    The word "ringing" is in the present tense. This is because it is the base form of the verb "ring" and is used to describe an action that is happening currently or regularly. "Rang" is the past tense form of the verb, indicating that the action already occurred in the past. "Ringed" is not a correct form of the verb in any tense.
