Can You Even Pass A 3rd Grade Grammar Test?

Or nah?


  1. Which is a helping verb?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    WILL. They're those boring-ass verbs that don't really do shit, like "am, is, are, was and were, being, been, will," etc.


  2. The suffix of "sailed" shows that the verb is in the:

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Past tense! The suffix "ed" shows it's in past tense, like "People who FAILED this quiz suck at grammar."


  3. What does the suffix in "raiding" mean?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    "Ing" means that the verb is an action or process. Cool.


  4. Each of the boys ___ guitar lessons.

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    "Takes." "Each" requires a singular verb — "takes."


  5. Everyone in the class __ present today.

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    "Is." "Everyone" requires a plural verb, like "If everyone in third grade is able to answer these, so should you."


  6. "Think big." What's the subject of this sentence?

    jenifoto / Getty
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    It's "you," since this is a command, like "Stop talking."


  7. Should there be a comma?
     "I am tall and you are short." 

    jenifoto / Getty
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    After "tall." These are two independent clauses separated by the conjunction "and," so the comma goes before "and" aka after tall.


  8. __ tells what the subject does or is.

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    The predicate tells you what the subject does or is, and I respect that.


  9. He's not feeling ___ today.

    jenifoto / Getty
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    "Well." You should know this because of those annoying people who always correct people who say "good."


  10. Which of the following words is an irregular plural noun?

    jenifoto / Getty
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    "Mice." Irregular plural nouns are nouns like "mice" and "oxen" that don't just become plural by adding an "s." They have to work for it.
