Topic: Can homework be plural
July 20, 2019 / By Flossie Question:
I know that I've asked quite a few questions like this lately, but I'm getting ready for a very important exam and right now I'm out of school so I can't get help from a teacher. Please don't feel like you're doing my homework because that is not the case at all. Thank you very much to those who will answer!!

Festival in Scotland, but l’m afraid I can parrticipate in .........................

1. B. If the sentence is supposed to say 'can' then the answer is neither of them. If it is supposed to say 'can't', then the answer is either of them. This is because the n in neither acts as the negative for the sentence, instead of the not in can't.
2. A. This is because it is explaining why it is a duty of honour.
3. B. This is because the family consists of more than one person, and so Browns is a plural, rather than a possessive, and so an apostrophe is not needed.
4. B. This is because it is in the past tense.
5. A. Although, generally, people either say 'keen about' or 'keen on'.
I hope I helped to clarify the answers.
1. If it's 'I can't participate', it would be 'neither of them';
3. B or D;
Those are the answers I will choose.
