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.

(Lorie: C
friends: C
movie: C
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.

(freedom: A
people: C
world: C )

3. The teacher assigned homework.

(teacher: C
homework: C )

4. In the midst of the excitement, Samuel lost his pencil on the bus.

(excitement: A
Samuel: C
pencil: C
bus: C )

5. Tom could see the anger on his face.

(Tom: C
anger: A
face: C )

my book says:
Concrete nouns name something that is tangible. you can see, touch, taste, smell, or hear these words.
examples: see--sky
touch--desk
taste--ice cream
smell--flowers
hear--bell

Concrete nouns also name things that have a specific definition, such as nouns that refer to time or date.
examples: Labor Day
Five O'Clock
spring
Saturday
midnight
noon


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.
examples: hate
love
courage
freedom
faith
attitude
happiness
