Quiz playing is a wonderful way to increase your knowledge of English as a Second Language. Remember that all of our ESL quizzes have titles that are both friendly and technical at the same time… In the case of this quiz you might like to tell your friends about “A Batch of Brain-Teasers” but no doubt your teachers will talk about the “Groups, Collectives & Containers quiz”! If you hear a technical term and you want to find a quiz about the subject then just look through the list of quiz titles until you find what you need.
This quiz covers groups, collectives & containers. English uses very specific words to refer to groups of particular things. This is perhaps not quite as complex as Mandarin Chinese, which uses different counting-words (but fortunately, not different sets of actual numbers) according to whether the things they are counting are alive or dead, flat or solid, and a whole load of other category divisions. Learn about these groups, collectives & containers and any English speakers that you meet conversationally will probably congratulate you if you know and use them correctly.
See how you get on with this 'batch of brain-teasers'!
