  • 2. 

    He is not my brother, for i am an only child.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Capitalization." The explanation for this answer is that the sentence is discussing the incorrect use of capitalization. In the sentence, "brother" should not be capitalized because it is not a proper noun. The person speaking is stating that they are an only child, emphasizing that they do not have a brother.

    ACLC is accredited by TESDA.

    Explanation
    The given statement "ACLC is accredited by TESDA" suggests that ACLC has received accreditation from TESDA. The answer choices "Capitalization" and "Acronym" are both relevant to the statement. "Capitalization" refers to the use of capital letters in writing, and in this case, ACLC is written in all capital letters. "Acronym" refers to a word formed from the initial letters of other words, and ACLC is an acronym for the name of the institution. Therefore, both "Capitalization" and "Acronym" can be considered correct explanations for the given statement.

    This answer suggests that the future of IT is characterized by the importance of capitalization, punctuation marks, commas, and periods. These elements are crucial in written communication, especially in the field of information technology. Proper capitalization helps convey meaning and professionalism, while punctuation marks, such as commas and periods, aid in organizing and clarifying sentences. Therefore, the answer implies that attention to these language conventions is essential in the future of IT.

    The following are the cutest girls in ACLC: Cherish, Loida, and Josephine.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is Punctuation Mark, Colon, Semi Colon. In the given sentence, the list of names "Cherish, Loida, and Josephine" is being introduced or preceded by a punctuation mark. The colon is commonly used to introduce a list or to separate two independent clauses. The semi-colon is used to separate items in a list when those items already contain commas. Therefore, all three options - Punctuation Mark, Colon, and Semi Colon - are correct in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Robert Martinez, along with all her girlfriends, is arriving today.

    Explanation
    The given sentence states that "Robert Martinez, along with all her girlfriends, is arriving today." The pronoun "her" is incorrect in this context because "Robert Martinez" is a male name, so the correct pronoun to use would be "his."

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The children of the corn is a terrifying movie.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Capitalization" because the question states that the movie title "The children of the corn" is not capitalized correctly. Capitalization refers to the use of uppercase letters at the beginning of a word or in proper nouns. Therefore, the correct answer is capitalization, as it is necessary to capitalize the first letter of each word in a movie title.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    My favorite Christmas delights are; Hamon de Bola, Puto Bungbong and Bibingka.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Comma" because the sentence lists three different Christmas delights, and a comma is used to separate each item in the list. The comma helps to clarify that each item is distinct and separate from the others.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Nordan Ojeda had arrived this coming January.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Verb Tense, Past Perfect, Future, Future Perfect". This answer suggests that the question is asking about the verb tense used in the sentence "Nordan Ojeda had arrived this coming January." The sentence is written in the past perfect tense, indicating that the action of Nordan Ojeda arriving occurred before a specific point in the past. The options "Future" and "Future Perfect" are incorrect as they do not match the verb tense used in the sentence.

    My favorite subject.

  • 11. 

    How to eat a Cream-O cookie:1. Open the package.2. Check the cookie for any damage.3. Dunk the cookie to your soft drink.4. And eat it.

    Explanation
    The given answer "Fragment Sentence" is correct because the instructions provided are not complete sentences. Each step is missing a subject or a verb, making them incomplete fragments rather than complete sentences.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    That is my house over there, beneath the moonlit sky and crooning right beside the raunchy red building where lovers enter to hide in the spying eyes of the public.

    Explanation
    The given passage is an example of a run-on sentence because it contains multiple independent clauses that are not properly separated or joined. The sentence lacks appropriate punctuation or conjunctions to indicate the relationship between the clauses. As a result, the sentence becomes long and confusing, making it difficult for the reader to understand the intended meaning.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Adobo, along with all its variants, are the best recipe Aling Saling has!

    Explanation
    The given sentence is incorrect because there is a disagreement between the subject and verb. "Adobo, along with all its variants" is a singular subject, so the verb should be "is" instead of "are". The correct sentence should be "Adobo, along with all its variants, is the best recipe Aling Saling has!"

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    This sentence doesnt have six words.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Punctuation Mark, Apostrophe" because the sentence is missing a punctuation mark at the end and there is a misspelled word "doesnt" which requires an apostrophe to indicate the contraction "doesn't".

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Manny 'Pacman' Pacquiao

    Explanation
    The correct answer is Punctuation Mark, Apostrophe, Quotation Marks. Punctuation marks are used to clarify the meaning and structure of written language. An apostrophe is a punctuation mark used to indicate possession or to show the omission of letters in a contraction. Quotation marks are used to enclose direct speech or a quotation from another source. In this case, Manny 'Pacman' Pacquiao includes both an apostrophe and quotation marks, making the correct answer Punctuation Mark, Apostrophe, Quotation Marks.
