Answer Key:

  1. B

Explanation: Since this is a statement we follow the subject – verb – other words order.

  1. C

Explanation: This is a question so we must first use the helping verb ‘do’ and then follow the subject – verb – other words order.

  1. A

Explanation: The comma is placed after Sunita, so we must start the sentence with this word and then follow the verb – other words order.

  1. C

Explanation: Follow the order of Verb – other words after starting the sentence with the introductory ‘there.’ The information about directions must be arranged in descending order. Hence we must mention ‘four directions’ first and then ‘four sub-directions.’ 

  1. B

Explanation: We must start the sentence with the introductory ‘there’ followed by the verb – other words order.

  1. A

Explanation: Follow the subject – verb – other words order. Also take care of the comma – since it is placed after ‘green’ this word has to be written before ‘leafy.’ It is also the order of adjectives.

  1. C

Explanation: This is an imperative sentence so start with the verb – give. Since the comma is placed after ‘ball’; we must use ‘please’ only at the end of the sentence.

  1. C

Explanation: This is an exclamatory sentence so begin with ‘what’ and follow the Other words – subject – verb order.

  1. A

Explanation: This is an imperative sentence, so start with the verb ‘turn’ and follow with the other words.

  1. A

Explanation: This is a question, so start with the ‘WH’ word. Since the comma is placed after ‘house’ we must place ‘Rahul’ after ‘house’ otherwise there will be two punctuation marks at the end of the question – as seen in option B – and this is wrong.
