English grammar is one of those things that will never cease to be confusing. For example, there are different words that sound the same but are spelled differently, or spelled the same but mean different things. These are called homophones. For example, think of to, too, and two (sound the same, different spelling), or quail and quail (pronounced the same, spelled the same, but two different meanings). Don’t get me started on homographs and homonyms either. Like many languages, English can be difficult, especially if learning it as a second language. So, the best of luck if you encounter a notorious “Grammar Police” on one of your social media posts.
To that effect, today we bring you a grammar quiz that will help you know just how good you know the rules of English.
