Answer Key:

  1. C

Explanation: Every word (except my) must be made plural. Thus: ‘that’ changes to ‘those’; ‘boy’ changes to ‘boys’; ‘is’ changes to ‘are’ and ‘friend’ changes to ‘friends’.

  1. A

Explanation: Three words – ‘these’, ‘books’ and ‘shelves’ must be made singular. Thus – ‘these’ changes to ‘this’; ‘books’ changes to ‘book’ and ‘shelves’ changes to ‘shelf.’

  1. B

Explanation: Three words – baby, its and mother need to be changed into plural. Hence – ‘baby’ changes to ‘babies’; ‘its’ changes to ‘their’ and ‘mother’ changes to ‘mothers.’

  1. A

Explanation: Three words – I, bench and park need to be made plural and so ‘I’ changes to ‘we’; ‘bench’ changes to ‘benches’ and ‘park’ changes to ‘parks.’

  1. B

Explanation: Here only one word needs to be turned into plural – thus ‘thief’ changes to ‘thieves’. The word ‘police’ is always used as it is – there is no plural form – it is a collective noun.

  1. B

Explanation: All the words (except ‘an’) needs to be made plural. Thus ‘that’ changes to ‘those’; ‘farmer’ changes to ‘farmers’; ‘has’ changes to ‘have’ and ‘ox’ changes to ‘oxen.’ The word ‘an’ gets deleted since it cannot be used for plural nouns (an = one).

  1. A

Explanation: Three words – these, children and chocolates are made singular – this, child, and chocolate respectively. Also the word ‘a’ gets added as ‘a’ = one.

  1. C

Explanation: Only two words – uncle and glass – need to be made plural (uncles and glasses respectively). ‘Your’ and ‘water’ do not change.

  1. D

Explanation: ‘Scarf’ changes to ‘scarves’, ‘is’ changes to ‘are’ and ‘box’ changes to ‘boxes.’

  1. A

Explanation: ‘That’ changes to ‘those’; ‘man’ changes to ‘men’; ‘woman’ changes to ‘women’; ‘uncle’ changes to ‘uncles’ and ‘aunt’ changes to ‘aunts.’
