Example Questions

Example Question #4 : Language

Select the correct word to fill in the blank. 

The cat __________ on the step. 

Possible Answers:

is

are

am

were

Correct answer:

is

Explanation:

This sentence is talking about one cat, we know this because the sentence says "the cat". Because we are only talking about one cat, "were" and "are" are not correct because we would use those words to talk about more than one cat. The word "am" is used with the pronoun "I", so that is not correct. The correct answer is "is". 

"The cat is on the step."

Example Question #5 : Language

Select the correct word to fill in the blank. 

I ________ hungry. 

Possible Answers:

has 

were

am

is

Correct answer:

am

Explanation:

This sentence is talking about one person, the pronoun "I". The only choice that goes with the word "I" is "am". "Is" and "has" goes with the pronouns "she" and "he". "Were" goes with a group of people, like "they".
