Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Put down all the determiners in this sentence.

    Explanation
    The determiners in the sentence are "much," "the," and "a." Determiners are words that come before nouns and provide information about quantity, ownership, or specificity. In this sentence, "much" is a determiner that indicates a large quantity, "the" is a determiner that specifies a particular noun, and "a" is a determiner that indicates an indefinite noun.

  • 2. 

    Where is the relative clause in this sentence?

    Explanation
    The relative clause in this sentence is "that was parked outside the shop." A relative clause is a type of subordinate clause that provides additional information about a noun or pronoun in the main clause. In this case, the relative clause is modifying an unspecified noun and giving more details about something that was parked outside the shop.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    What word do you need to use to introduce the subordinate clause properly?

    • A.

      In addition

    • B.

      Furthermore

    • C.

      Otherwise

    • D.

      Even though

    Correct Answer
    D. Even though
    Explanation
    Even though is the correct answer because it is used to introduce a subordinate clause that presents a contrast or contradiction to the main clause. It indicates that despite something being true or happening, there is still another fact or condition that is also relevant. The other options, such as "in addition," "furthermore," and "otherwise," do not serve the same purpose of introducing a subordinate clause that presents a contrast.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    How can you rewrite this sentence so it will begin with the adverbial?

    Correct Answer
    Before we left, we turned the lights off.
    Before we left, we turned off the lights.
    before we left, we turned the lights off.
    Explanation
    The sentence "Before we left, we turned the lights off" can be rewritten as "Before we left, we turned off the lights." Both sentences have the same meaning and structure, but the second sentence begins with the adverbial phrase "Before we left."

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Dad booked tickets before he collected them. What word do you need to add so the sentence will display the information properly

    Correct Answer
    had
    Explanation
    The word "had" needs to be added to the sentence so that it displays the information properly. This is because "had" is the past tense of the verb "have" and is used to indicate that an action occurred before another action in the past. In this case, adding "had" before "booked" clarifies that Dad booked the tickets before he collected them.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The sentence should be in the subjunctive mood. What word/s do you need to use?

    • A.

      Could be

    • B.

      May be

    • C.

      Was

    • D.

      Were

    Correct Answer
    D. Were
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "were" because it is used in the subjunctive mood to express hypothetical or unreal situations. In this case, the sentence is likely referring to a hypothetical condition or possibility, which requires the use of "were" instead of "was."

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Where will you place a comma in this sentence? Put down the whole sentence.

    Correct Answer
    Full of enthusiasm, the children entered the room at the start of their lesson.
    Explanation
    The comma is placed after the introductory phrase "Full of enthusiasm" to separate it from the main clause "the children entered the room at the start of their lesson." This helps to clarify the sentence structure and indicate that the phrase is providing additional information about the subject of the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which of these sentences is grammatically correct?

    • A.

      The cake was lovely – delicious, in fact – so I had another slice.

    • B.

      The cake was – lovely delicious in fact – so I had another slice.

    • C.

      The cake was – lovely, delicious, in fact so – I had another slice.

    • D.

      The cake was lovely – delicious, in fact, so – I had another slice.

    Correct Answer
    A. The cake was lovely – delicious, in fact – so I had another slice.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The cake was lovely – delicious, in fact – so I had another slice." This sentence correctly uses dashes to set off the phrase "delicious, in fact" as an interrupter. The commas are also used correctly to separate the adjectives "lovely" and "delicious."

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    One of these events is the most likely to happen. Which one?

    • A.

      He can come to my party today.

    • B.

      They might have fish fingers for tea today.

    • C.

      We could go to the swimming pool today.

    • D.

      She will buy some new shoes today.

    Correct Answer
    D. She will buy some new shoes today.
    Explanation
    Based on the given options, the event that is most likely to happen is "She will buy some new shoes today." This is because the statement is in the future tense and expresses a specific action that can be easily accomplished within a day. The other options involve possibilities or suggestions, which may or may not occur.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    What word/s make this sentence a question?

    Correct Answer
    shouldn't you
    Explanation
    The word "shouldn't" in the sentence "shouldn't you" is a contraction of "should not" and indicates a suggestion or expectation. The word "you" is the subject of the sentence, indicating that the question is directed towards the listener. Together, these words form an interrogative sentence structure, making the sentence a question.
