This is the second quiz of a series of two that is dedicated towards helping you review your understanding of words and their value in a sentence. When we speak we really do not tend to think about the words that we are using – we just say them. However, when we write, knowing words does become a critical factor.
No matter what career you will wind up choosing in life, you will always have to do some amount of writing – sometimes you will have to do a lot of writing. In essence, in order to continue to write successfully, you will need to stay alert with your understanding of words, not to mention verb tenses. In fact, being able to master words has been directly related to how successful a person will be in life.
In the following series of ten sentences a word or words have been underlined. You will need to determine what kind of a word the underlined word or words are, i.e., is it a noun, a possessive noun, a verb, a preposition, an adverb, an adjective, a participle, a gerund or an infinitive. If you can get all ten answers right – you are amazing! If not, then try taking this quiz and quiz [Part 1] over again until you feel that you really do understand words. Good luck!
