Hello future novelists and journalists of KS3! Are you ready for a little challenge to prove your mastery of English grammar? Brace yourselves as this fun quiz is going to test your knowledge of everything from conjunctions to commas, verbs to vowels, and sentence structures to subject-verb agreement. So, without further ado, let the game of words commence!
Select the sentence with correct use of punctuation.
Why are you late for school, today?
Why, are you late for school today?
Why are you, late for school today?
Why are you late for school today?
Punctuation marks should not separate the subject from the predicate. In option D, there are no unnecessary punctuation marks.
Which is a compound sentence?
Because the cat was hungry, it ate its food.
I love chocolate and I love vanilla.
Though it’s raining, we are going for a run.
She is a teacher at the local school.
A compound sentence is a sentence that has at least two independent clauses joined by a comma, conjunction, or semicolon. Option B satisfies this definition.
Which of the following sentences is grammatically correct?
She don't like chocolate.
He do not like chocolate.
She doesn't like chocolate.
He doesn't likes chocolate.
In English, the correct conjugation is 'does not' or 'doesn't' for third person singular subjects. Therefore, 'She doesn't like chocolate' is correct.
Which sentence correctly uses the apostrophe?
The kitten's are playing in the garden.
It's a beautiful day outside.
John's book is on the table.
Both B and C
An apostrophe is used to indicate possession in option C, where the apostrophe correctly shows that the book belongs to John. In option B 'It's' is a contraction of 'It is' so an apostrophe is used in place of the missing letter 'i'.
Which sentence uses commas correctly?
My best friends, Lizzy and, Sam are here.
My best friends Lizzy, and Sam are here.
My best friends, Lizzy and Sam, are here.
My best friends Lizzy and Sam are, here.
Commas should be used to separate items in a list and to separate independent clauses. In this sentence, 'Lizzy and Sam' are treated as one item in the list.
Which among these sentences is an interrogative sentence?
Bring me that book.
What a beautiful flower!
He is an intelligent boy.
Have you done your homework?
Interrogative sentences are used to ask questions. Option D 'Have you done your homework?' is a question.
What tense is the following sentence: 'I brushed my teeth this morning?'
Present tense
Future tense
Past tense
Present continuous tense
'Brushed' is in the past tense, indicating that the action has already been completed.
What is the adjective in this sentence: 'The playful puppy pounced on its toy'?
An adjective is a word that describes a noun. In this sentence, 'playful' is describing the noun 'puppy', so it is the adjective.
From the options below, which is a homophone?
Flower and flour
Their and they're
Here and hear
All of the above
Homophones are words that sound the same but have different meanings and spellings.
Which of these sentences has correct subject-verb agreement?
My friends likes to play football.
My brother and I enjoys video games.
The students in the class is noisy.
My dog always barks at strangers.
In English, singular subjects take singular verbs and plural subjects take plural verbs. 'My dog' is singular, and 'barks' is the correctly matched singular verb.
