Select the correct form of the word to complete the sentence. Six small ____ came to the edge of the stream. deers deer both

QUESTION POSTED AT 15/01/2020 - 01:30 AM

Answered by admin AT 15/01/2020 - 01:30 AM

The correct answer is Deer

Explanation:

In English language, most words become plural by adding "s" or "-es" to them, however there are exceptions to this rule as some words need other changes to become plural such as "children" that is the plural form of "child" and even some words do not change but are the same in singular and plural, this includes the words fish, moose, sheep, and deer. Considering this, it can be concluded in the case of "Six small ____ came to the edge of the stream" the correct word is "deer" as this is the word used for plural while "deers" is incorrect.

Which lines in this excerpt from Leo Tolstoy’s The Death of Ivan Ilyich reflects the author’s opinion that the members of the medical profession don’t really care about their patients? Peter went to the door, but Ivan Ilyich dreaded being left alone. "How can I keep him here? Oh yes, my medicine." "Peter, give me my medicine." "Why not? Perhaps it may still do some good." He took a spoonful and swallowed it. "No, it won't help. It's all tomfoolery, all deception," he decided as soon as he became aware of the familiar, sickly, hopeless taste. "No, I can't believe in it any longer. But the pain, why this pain? If it would only cease just for a moment!" And he moaned. Peter turned towards him. "It's all right. Go and fetch me some tea." …Her attitude towards him and his diseases is still the same. Just as the doctor had adopted a certain relation to his patient which he could not abandon, so had she formed one towards him—that he was not doing something he ought to do and was himself to blame, and that she reproached him lovingly for this—and she could not now change that attitude. "You see he doesn't listen to me and doesn't take his medicine at the proper time. And above all he lies in a position that is no doubt bad for him—with his legs up." She described how he made Gerasim hold his legs up. The doctor smiled with a contemptuous affability that said: "What's to be done?

To answer this question, read the following sentence: Because the animal shelter was filled with dogs and cats, the noise in the building was incredibly loud. What is the subject in this sentence? A. loud B. dogs and cats C. noise D. animal shelter

If we note the structure of this sentence, we shall observe that the central point of discussion is the Animal Shelter filled with dogs and cats, and all parts of the sentence are connected to it. The subject is the central part of the sentence. Through this sentence, we are also informed of a supporting theme or subject that says more about the central theme.  

Further Explanation:

The animal shelter is occupied with dogs and cats. Every sentence is divided into two parts, that are inevitably connected to each other. The subject of the sentence is not always placed at the beginning of the sentence. It also depends to a certain extent on the type of the sentence in context. For example, the sentence here is a compound sentence and has more than one subject.  

The subject can be a form of a noun, a phrase (gerund), infinitive, any form of that- clause, free relative clause, direct quotation, implied subject within a statement, an expletive or a cataphoric it. The words within a sentence have to be arranged sequentially so that the subject agrees with the finite verb, and is positioned before it in a declarative clause. The subject shall be accompanied by a verb, which is in agreement with the subject. The verb brings out the action that the subject is supposed to signify. As said earlier, any sentence might have multiple verbs, however, the verb that accompanies the main subject is called the main verb. There are also different types of subjects that can be found in the sentence.
