For each question in this quiz, chose the missing word(s).
Select all that apply:
When whom or which is used, the preposition may be at the beginning of the clause.
“Might have entered” would be better if there had been many possible ways for the thief to enter. “Might” indicates a remote possibility.
“May have entered” would be better if the window had been the only obvious way for the thief to enter.
Though and although are interchangeable.
Farther indicates distance. Where distance is not involved, further is the better (safer) choice. However, check your favorite style guide. Sometimes, farther is used to describe distance from completion!
This sentence clearly refers to physical distance, so farther is the correct adjective.
When a descriptive clause is set between commas, it is deemed nonessential. In this case, “The house is for sale again.” would stand alone.
A different sentence might say, “The house that Jack built is for sale again.” In that example, the sentence meaning is dependent on Jack.
Like indicates simularity. One thing is like another.
As indicates ‘in the same way’.
She and he are pronouns that represent subjects. Her and him represent the object(s) of a verb.
