It's been a while since someone has posted in here, Thread is still open so these flash cards are still a good source study with I am assuming?


Thanks

I believe audience is a collective noun too and in American English it will be used as audience is instead of audience are unless it is in a plural form such as three audiences...

papgust wrote:
"Collective Nouns" such as a group (of things), a crowd (of people), a herd (of cattle), a flock (of sheep), a regiment (of soldiers) etc. are usually SINGULAR and they take a SINGULAR VERB.

Examples:

A crowd of people has gathered.
A flock of sheep was grazing.


EXCEPTIONS:

If the members of the group are taken individually, then a PLURAL VERB may be used.

Example:

The audience are requested to leave by the nearest exit -- Groups of people take the nearest exit. They are not considered as a single group. So, we use a plural verb.

Possessive Pronouns:

Possessive Pronouns can refer back to ONLY Possessive nouns.

Subject and Object Pronouns can refer back to ONLY Subject and Objects nouns respectively. (NOT Possessive Nouns)


Example:
Jose's room is so messy that his mother calls him a pig -- WRONG! "Him" (Object Pronoun) refers to Jose's (Possessive Noun).

Jose's room is so messy that his mother calls Jose a pig -- RIGHT!
@papgust, can you give egs of possessive pronouns. Possessive nouns are the nouns with "'s" in the end right?

and thanks for these amazing notes Smile

Examples of possessive pronoun are: HIS and HER.
These are used to refer possessive nouns('s).
A possessive noun(Jose's) has to be referred using possessive pronoun HIS. If we wish to refer JOSE(not JOSE's) in the same sentence, we cannot use HIM. Since HIM cannot refer to JOSE's. Therefor we use the noun Jose.

Eg
1) Ram's book was so inspirational that publishers approached him/Ram.
2) Ram's book was so successful that his/him/Ram mother called his/him/Ram to congratulate .

Answer
1) Ram
2) his , Ram

I hope this helps !!

My room is so messy that my mother calls me a pig.

Is this a correct construction. Here ME being object pronoun refers back to MY. Please enlighten me.Sad

Please suggest what's the best material available to improve Sentence Correction. My accuracy in SC sucks, have been practicing SC for the last 3 weeks but there is no improvement. Learning more is just screwing my accuracy. I had 690 (34V and 48Q) when I took the 1st prep test on mba.com.
