      Scarves

    Correct Answer
    B. Scarves
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "scarves". In this sentence, the noun "scarf" is pluralized to refer to two silk scarves. The plural form of "scarf" is "scarves", not "scarfs". Therefore, the correct answer is "scarves".

    B. Chiefs
    Explanation
    The word "chiefs" is the correct answer because it is the plural form of "chief." In the sentence, it is mentioned that there are multiple tribes, and the sentence is referring to the leaders of those tribes. Therefore, the plural form "chiefs" is appropriate to indicate that there are multiple leaders who decided to fight for their lands.

    The correct answer is "hypotheses" because the word "only" in the sentence suggests that there should be more than one hypothesis to support the argument. A hypothesis is a proposed explanation or prediction that can be tested, and having multiple hypotheses allows for a more comprehensive analysis and consideration of different possibilities. Therefore, it is important not to rely solely on one hypothesis when making an argument.

    • A.

      Wolfs

    Correct Answer
    B. Wolves
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "wolves" because when referring to more than one wolf, the plural form is used. The correct plural form of "wolf" is "wolves". Therefore, in the given sentence, "Two wolves are following the Eskimo" is the correct way to express that there are multiple wolves following the Eskimo.

      Deers

    • B.

      Deer

    Correct Answer
    B. Deer
    Explanation
    The word "deer" is the correct answer because "deer" is both the singular and plural form of the word. Therefore, whether the hunter killed one or multiple deer, the word "deer" remains the same. "Deers" is not a correct form of the word and should not be used in this context.
