please check these answers for me:
Underline all the nouns in the following sentences. Above each, LABEL whether it is concrete or abstract by writing a "C" or an "A." This part is worth 18 points.
1. Lorie and her friends went to a movie on the Fourth of July.
Fourth of July: A )
i'm confused about the last one.i think it could be C because it tells a specific time
2. American enjoy more freedom than many people around the world.

3. The teacher assigned homework.
homework: C )
4. In the midst of the excitement, Samuel lost his pencil on the bus.

my book says:
Concrete nouns name something that is tangible. you can see, touch, taste, smell, or hear these words.
Concrete nouns also name things that have a specific definition, such as nouns that refer to time or date.
examples: Labor Day
Abstract nouns name an idea, a feeling, a quality, or a characteristic. These are things that cannot be touched or seen. These are words that could have several definitions depending upon the way you interpret them.
thanks for checking
1. Fourth of July is a concrete noun.
2. You missed a noun, but your classifications are correct.
4. You missed a noun but the rest is right.
4. Not sure what the other noun is
4. Every "the, a, an" in a sentence must be followed by a noun. Does that help you see the noun you missed?
