Example Question #1 : Understand And Edit For Grammar

Select the word that correctly completes the sentence provided. 

Stuart doesn't like any food ___________ is green. 

Possible Answers:

who

he

that

which

Correct answer:

that

Explanation:

The correct answer is "that". Stuart doesn't like any food that is green. 

To answer this question correctly, we need to recall a few grammar rules:

"Who" normally refers to people. "Which" and "that" normally refer to groups of things."Which" is used before a sentence clause that is extra information, or not essential to the point of the sentence. "That" is used before a sentence clause that is needed to understand the point of the sentence. "He" is a pronoun that does not fit in this blank because a pronoun should not be used in this place of the sentence. 

For this sentence, the clause that follows the "that" is important to understand the complete thought of the sentence. Without the information that comes after the "that" we would assume that Stuart doesn't like any type of food, which is not the correct message that the sentence is relaying.
