Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    I _____ (be) a student.

    • A.

      Are

    • B.

      Is

    • C.

      Am

    Correct Answer
    C. Am
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "am" because the subject of the sentence is "I" which is the first person singular pronoun. In English, when the subject is "I," we use the verb "am" to indicate that we are the doer of the action. Therefore, the correct sentence is "I am a student."

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    My father __________ excuses when I feel like going to the cinema.

    • A.

      Make always

    • B.

      Always make

    • C.

      Always makes

    Correct Answer
    C. Always makes
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "always makes". In this sentence, the subject "My father" is singular, so the verb should also be singular. "Makes" is the correct form of the verb to agree with the subject. The adverb "always" indicates that this action happens regularly or consistently.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    She ________ (not, be) six years old.

    • A.

      Isn't

    • B.

      Not is

    • C.

      Are not

    Correct Answer
    A. Isn't
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "isn't". This is because the sentence is in the present tense and refers to a singular subject, "she". In negative sentences, the contraction "isn't" is used to indicate the absence of the verb "be" in the present tense.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    .The flowers _______________ (be, normally) watered by Bob

    • A.

      Are normally

    • B.

      Normally are

    • C.

      Normally is

    Correct Answer
    A. Are normally
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "are normally" because it follows the subject-verb agreement rule. In this sentence, "flowers" is the subject, which is plural, so the verb "are" should be used instead of "is". Additionally, "normally" is an adverb that modifies the verb "are", indicating that the flowers are usually watered by Bob.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Danny ________ (phone) his father on Sundays.

    • A.

      Phons

    • B.

      Phones

    • C.

      Phone

    Correct Answer
    B. Phones
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "phones" because the sentence is in the third person singular form and requires the verb "phones" to agree with the subject "Danny".

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    I am clever student.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement "I am a clever student" is a self-assessment or self-perception. Since the person making the statement believes themselves to be clever, it can be inferred that the statement is true from their perspective. However, it is important to note that the accuracy of this statement may vary depending on objective measures of intelligence or academic performance.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    She and I is beautiful.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given sentence "She and I is beautiful" is grammatically incorrect. The subject pronouns "she" and "I" should be followed by the verb "are" instead of "is" because they are plural. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Rate this question:

  • 8.

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer

    The given statement "My mother and is same" is grammatically incorrect and does not make sense. It seems like there is a missing word or words in the sentence. Therefore, it cannot be true.
