Test: Type III (Adjectives) - Question 1

Correct the following sentence.
Which is the easier to learn - French, German or English?

Detailed Solution for Test: Type III (Adjectives) - Question 1

Easy is an adjective, which has degrees of comparison. In the given example, because the comparison is among all the things listed, the degree will be superlative. Therefore, the suffix "-est" will be added to the base form of the adjective easy. So, just by virtue of degree of comparison, Options B and D are eliminated, since, easier is the comparative form and easy is the positive form of comparison. Easy is a one syllable word, which requires only the addition of suffixes "-er" or "-est" to indicate the degree of comparison. The words much, more and most are used to determine the degrees of comparison when the given adjective has more than one syllable. Thus, option C is also ineligible. Option A is the correct one since it employs the correct form of the superlative degree with the use of the article "the" preceding it. 

Test: Type III (Adjectives) - Question 2

Chose the correct option to complete the sentence.
Apples may not be as ___ as mangoes but they are certainly ___ nutritious.

Detailed Solution for Test: Type III (Adjectives) - Question 2

The use of 'as...'as' structure in the first part of the sentence requires the use of the positive degree of the adjective 'sweet', and the second part compares the nutritional value of the two fruits so we use a comparative degree of the adjective: 'more nutritious.'

Test: Type III (Adjectives) - Question 3

 Which of the following sentences contains a predicate adjective?

Detailed Solution for Test: Type III (Adjectives) - Question 3

Predicate adjectives follow a linking verb and describe the subject. In sentence b, "lovely" is a predicate adjective following the linking verb "smell." In sentence c, "happy" is a predicate adjective following the linking verb "looked."
 

Test: Type III (Adjectives) - Question 4

Which of the following sentences contains a demonstrative adjective?

Detailed Solution for Test: Type III (Adjectives) - Question 4

Demonstrative adjectives are words like "this," "that," "these," and "those" that indicate specific things. In this sentence, "these" is a demonstrative adjective referring to the apples.

Test: Type III (Adjectives) - Question 5

Fill in the blank with a suitable adjective:
A: Hello, darling. I've got a present for you.
B: For me?
A: Don't look so _________. I often buy you presents.
B: But it isn't my birthday!

Detailed Solution for Test: Type III (Adjectives) - Question 5

Adjectives are words that define the noun. In this case, the adjective should define the person B's reaction. An unexpected or astonishing event has happened in B's life because he/she did not expect the present from A. "Bored" means feeling weary and impatient because one is unoccupied or lacks interest in one's current activity, which does not define the person's reaction. "Exciting" defines a person who is with a lot of eager and enthusiasm, which again does not define the person's reaction. "Tiring" defines a person who is worn out of energy. Finally, surprised defines a person who had undergone an unexpected or astonishing event in his/her life. Option D defines the exact situation of B.

Test: Type III (Adjectives) - Question 6

Use the following information to answer the question that follows.

I. She is as good looking as a pig.
II. She is not better looking than a pig.

Which of the given sentences has a positive degree of comparison?

Detailed Solution for Test: Type III (Adjectives) - Question 6

Sentence I and II mean the same. However, in sentence I, the positive degree (good) is used. In sentence II, the comparative degree (better) is used. Hence, the correct answer is option A.

Test: Type III (Adjectives) - Question 7

Fill in the blank with the most suitable adjective from the options given below:
My house is _______ as yours.

Detailed Solution for Test: Type III (Adjectives) - Question 7

The given sentence needs to be filled with the most suitable adjective. Looking at 'as yours' we can understand that the sentence is about a comparison between the size of houses and is in the positive degree. 'As' states equality here, which means both the houses are of the same size. Hence we can say 'as big as'. Thus the correct option is B - 'My house is as big as yours.' Option A is incorrect as we need 'as big as' to show the comparison. Option C is incorrect, as 'bigger' is the comparative adjective, whereas 'as big as' is used here to show the comparison. 'Bigger' can be used if someone's house was bigger than others. Option D is incorrect, as 'biggest' is the superlative adjective. Also, 'biggest as' doesn't make sense.

Test: Type III (Adjectives) - Question 8

Which one is the participial adjective in the following sentence?
The flying airplanes look very beautiful from our roof. The adjective is ____.

Detailed Solution for Test: Type III (Adjectives) - Question 8

In the sentence, "flying" is used to describe the airplanes, which makes it an adjective. It is a participle, specifically a present participle, because it is formed by adding "-ing" to the verb "fly." Participial adjectives function as modifiers to nouns or pronouns and can be used to describe physical appearance, characteristics, and actions. In this case, "flying" is used to describe how the airplanes appear, which makes it a participial adjective modifying the noun "airplanes."

Test: Type III (Adjectives) - Question 9

Fill in the blank with the most appropriate option:
I think, today the British television program "The Weakest Link" is _______ popular of all the TV programs.

Detailed Solution for Test: Type III (Adjectives) - Question 9

The form of an adjective indicating the greatest degree of the quality that the adjective describes. It is used only when more than three individuals, things or situations or places are compared. "The weakest link" is compared to all the other British television program. Now if we look into the options given :
much < more < most
Where much is positive, more is comparative and most is superlative
Now, when we use superlative degree usually "the" is used in front 
Option C is correct.

Test: Type III (Adjectives) - Question 10

Fill in the blanks with the most appropriate option:
"Please give me this bouquet of flowers. I think it is ___ than the rest."
"But it's ____."
"Never mind. I will buy it."

Detailed Solution for Test: Type III (Adjectives) - Question 10

The Comparative Degree denotes the existence of a higher degree of the quality than the positive. It is used when two things (or two sets of things) are compared.
The format for comparative degree is '<adjective> + er than' or 'more/less  <adjective> than'.
Hence option B is correct.
