Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What word best describes a non-fiction book?

    • A.

      Funny

    • B.

      Ancient

    • C.

      Informative

    • D.

      Premeditated

    Correct Answer
    C. Informative
    Explanation
    A non-fiction book is one that presents factual information, real events, or true stories rather than fictional content. Therefore, the term "informative" describes non-fiction books well because their primary purpose is to provide knowledge, facts, insights, or analysis on a particular topic, subject, or theme. Readers turn to non-fiction books to gain understanding, learn new things, or explore real-life experiences, making them valuable sources of information and education.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Which of these words does not belong with the others?

    • A.

      Solitary

    • B.

      Alone

    • C.

      Single

    • D.

      Frequent

    Correct Answer
    D. Frequent
    Explanation
    The words "Solitary," "Alone," and "Single" all refer to being alone or by oneself. "Frequent," on the other hand, means occurring often or regularly, which does not fit with the theme of being alone. Therefore, "Frequent" does not belong with the others.

    Based on only the title, which of these books is most likely to be a fantasy novel?

    • A.

      A Wizard Of Earthsea

    • C.

      Indigo's Star

    • D.

      Al Capone Does My Shirts

    Correct Answer
    A. A Wizard Of Earthsea
    Explanation
    "A Wizard Of Earthsea" is most likely to be a fantasy novel based on the title because it includes the term "wizard" which is commonly associated with fantasy literature. The word "Earthsea" also suggests a fictional world, further indicating that the book is likely to be a work of fantasy.

    Rate this question:

    Based only on the title, what is probably not true about "Summer of Fear"?

    • A.

      It Will Be Funny

    • B.

      There Will Be Lots Of Suspense

    • C.

      Action Takes Place Over Short Time

    • D.

      Someone Might Die In The Story

    Correct Answer
    A. It Will Be Funny
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "It Will Be Funny". This means that it is unlikely for "Summer of Fear" to be a funny story. The other options, such as "There Will Be Lots Of Suspense" and "Someone Might Die In The Story", suggest that the story is more likely to be a suspenseful and potentially dark or serious one. Additionally, the option "Action Takes Place Over Short Time" implies that the events of the story occur within a short period, which may contribute to the intensity of the plot.

    C. Cyclops
    Explanation
    In "The Odyssey," Odysseus encountered a one-eyed monster known as the Cyclops. This creature posed a great threat to Odysseus and his men as it devoured some of them and trapped the rest in its cave. Odysseus cleverly devised a plan to blind the Cyclops and escape, showcasing his resourcefulness and wit in the face of danger. Therefore, the correct answer is Cyclops.

    • B.

      Bill Has Wore Contacts For Years

    • C.

      Bill Worn Contacts For Years

    • D.

      Bill Wear Contacts For Years

    Correct Answer
    A. Bill Has Worn Contacts For Years
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Bill Has Worn Contacts For Years." This sentence is grammatically correct because it uses the present perfect tense ("has worn") to indicate an action that started in the past and continues up to the present. The verb "worn" is the past participle form of "wear," which is the correct verb to use in this context.

      The Company Ships Laptops Each Day

    Correct Answer
    D. The Company Ships Laptops Each Day
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The Company Ships Laptops Each Day". This sentence is correct because it follows the subject-verb agreement rule. The subject "The Company" is singular, so the verb "Ships" is used in the third person singular form to match the subject. Additionally, the use of "Each Day" indicates that this action is a regular occurrence.

    Correct Answer
    C. Bob, As Well As His Kids, Is Sure
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Bob, As Well As His Kids, Is Sure." This sentence is written correctly because it uses the correct subject-verb agreement. The subject of the sentence is "Bob," and the verb "is" agrees with the singular subject. The phrase "As Well As His Kids" is parenthetical and does not affect the subject-verb agreement.

    B. When It Is The Subject Of A Clause
    Explanation
    A pronoun should be used in the subjective case when it is the subject of a clause. In a sentence, the subject is the noun or pronoun that performs the action of the verb. When a pronoun is used as the subject, it should be in the subjective case. This allows for proper grammatical structure and clarity in the sentence.

    A pronoun should be used in the possessive case when it shows ownership. This means that the pronoun is used to indicate that something belongs to someone or something else. For example, in the sentence "The book is mine," the pronoun "mine" is used in the possessive case to show that the book belongs to the speaker.

    • C.

      A Simple Sentence

    • D.

      A Complex Sentence

    Correct Answer
    D. A Complex Sentence
    Explanation
    A complex sentence is a type of sentence that has one independent clause and one dependent clause. The independent clause can stand alone as a complete sentence, while the dependent clause relies on the independent clause to make sense. In a complex sentence, the dependent clause usually functions as an adverbial or adjectival clause, providing additional information or describing the independent clause.
