This elementary school English spelling quiz takes a look at plurals. Plurals are the opposite of singular words. We use plurals to show when there is more than one of something. In English, only nouns can become plural - I have one apple, but my friend has three apples. You have one board game, but you would like to have more board games. There are three regular plural endings: -s, -es, and -ies.
