In this post, MomJunction presents 101 English grammar quiz questions with answers, covering topics such as noun, verb, adjective and more. But first, let’s understand the English language a little more.


Understanding English Grammar

Grammar consists of eight parts of speech — nouns, determiners, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, and conjunctions. It consists of structural rules and arrangement of words and phrases, governing the formation of a sentence.

It is a misconception that grammar is about rigidity or set principles. In fact, no language can have set principles, as languages and grammar keep evolving. It is not the same as it was a hundred years ago.

However much it changes, grammar is the foundation of a language. Thus, having sufficient knowledge of grammar is important to express and communicate efficaciously.
