Test: Noun - Question 1

Choose the option that best corrects the underlined phrase.Every astronaut in the team have to follow a strict dietary regimen.

Detailed Solution for Test: Noun - Question 1

Though we are speaking about a team, the sentence uses the word 'every'. 'Every' is always followed by a verb in the singular form. Hence, the correct answer is C) Has to adhere to.
Option D also has the singular word 'has', but is incorrect as it also contains the word 'follows', making it grammatically incorrect.

Test: Noun - Question 2

Correct the underlined phrase, if necessary:
Cliff Richard, or Harry Webb as he was originally called, were award-winning artists, amassing many gold and platinum discs and awards during career highs.

Detailed Solution for Test: Noun - Question 2

There are two numbers in Noun-Number: Singular and Plural. When we speak about one person / thing, we use the noun in singular form. When we speak about more than one person / thing, we use the noun in plural form. 
When the sentence has the word 'or', we must consider the number of the subject that is closest to the verb. Here, both subjects are one person. Hence, the verb must be singular. The correct answer is B) Was an award-winning singer, since it is the only option that has the singular verb 'was'. In the given sentence, we are referring to one person Cliff Richard, who was also called Harry Webb, therefore, according to Subject-Verb-Agreement rules, we must use a singular verb as our subject is singular.

Test: Noun - Question 3

Pick out the concrete and abstract nouns from the following.
Harishchandra was famous for his truthfulness.

Detailed Solution for Test: Noun - Question 3

"Harishchandra was famous for his truthfulness."

  • Harishchandra: This is a specific person's name, referring to a tangible individual. Therefore, it is a concrete noun.

  • truthfulness: This refers to the quality or state of being truthful, which is an abstract concept. Therefore, it is an abstract noun.

Based on this analysis, the correct answer is: Harishchandra - Concrete Noun; truthfulness - Abstract Noun

Test: Noun - Question 4

Select the concrete and abstract noun from the following.

His confessions proved to be false.

Detailed Solution for Test: Noun - Question 4
  1. "confessions" - Concrete Noun: Confessions refer to specific statements made by someone, which are tangible and perceivable. They represent a physical act of speech or expression.

  2. "false" - Abstract Noun: False represents a concept or quality rather than a tangible object. It refers to the state of being untrue or incorrect, which is an intangible idea or concept.

So, the correct answer is:

  1. confessions, false - Abstract Noun

 

 

 

Test: Noun - Question 5

Correct the sentence at the underlined point:

Mark Twain and William Shakespeare are a highly appreciated author, but Shakespeare wrote in a much earlier time than Twain.

Detailed Solution for Test: Noun - Question 5

Option D: In the given sentence, two people are spoken of: Mark Twain and William Shakespeare. It's the subject of the sentence. The verb that follows 'are' is plural and agrees with the number of the subject. The phrase 'a' highly appreciated author' speaks of a singular noun, whereas the subject has two. Hence the underlined part must be changed and option D is wrong.

Option B: 'Well-regarded writers' refers to both people in the subject. Hence it's the most suitable option.

Option A: 'Highly appreciated writer' also refers to a single writer, but the sentence has two names mentioned. Hence B is wrong.

Option C: Similarly, 'well known speaker' also refers to a singular noun and hence C is also wrong.

Test: Noun - Question 6

Fill in the blank with the most appropriate option:Several new dams are being constructed. This will help to control floods and provide water for __________.

Detailed Solution for Test: Noun - Question 6
Explanation:

  • Fill in the blank: The blank should be filled with the word "irrigation" as it refers to the process of supplying water to land or crops to help growth.

  • Understanding the sentence: The sentence talks about the construction of new dams that will help control floods and provide water for a specific purpose.

  • Options analysis:

    • A: irrigate - This is a verb and does not fit the context of the sentence.

    • B: irrigated - This is a past tense verb and does not fit the context of the sentence.

    • C: irrigation - This is a noun that refers to the process of supplying water for growth, making it the correct choice to complete the sentence.

    • D: irrigating - This is a present participle verb form and does not fit the context of the sentence.



Test: Noun - Question 7

Choose the option that best corrects the underlined word.
All her children had mark on their cheeks, except for Josh whose complexion was clear.

Detailed Solution for Test: Noun - Question 7

Here, we are talking about 'children' which is plural. So we must use a plural noun. Among the options, the only plural noun is option B) freckles. Also, there is no indefinite article (a/an) to suggest that the noun must be a singular one.

Test: Noun - Question 8

In the following sentence, words have been italicized. To what category of noun do they belong?

Six detectives' hard work finally solved the case.

Detailed Solution for Test: Noun - Question 8

Abstract nouns refer to things that cannot be perceived through any of our senses (touch, see, taste, smell, hear). They are emotions, activities or states of being. For example, 'happiness', intelligence', etc.

In the given sentence, 'hard work' refers to 'a great deal of effort'. It's an activity that involves a good amount of effort and cannot be perceived through the senses. Hence it's an abstract noun and option C is correct.

Test: Noun - Question 9

In the following sentence, a word has been italicized. To what category of noun does it belong?

Roy was amazed when the robot voice called him by his nickname.

Detailed Solution for Test: Noun - Question 9

'Voice' means 'the sound produced in a person's larynx and uttered through the mouth, as speech or song' so voice is an abstract noun.

Test: Noun - Question 10

Choose the option that best corrects the underlined phrase:
Either John or David is repairing the plumbing, though neither of them has done it before.

Detailed Solution for Test: Noun - Question 10
Explanation:

  • Underlined phrase: "is repairing the plumbing"

  • Corrected phrase: "is repairing the plumbing" (NO CHANGE)

  • Reasoning: In the original sentence, "is" is the correct verb form to use with the singular subjects "John" or "David."

  • Option A: "are repairing the plumbing" - The verb "are" is plural and does not agree with the singular subjects "John" or "David."

  • Option C: "are sorting out the plumbing" - This changes the meaning of the sentence and does not accurately convey that John or David is repairing the plumbing.

  • Option D: "are renovating the plumbing" - This also changes the meaning of the sentence and does not accurately convey that John or David is repairing the plumbing.
