Match the part of speech:
c. antecedent (the noun (or nouns to which a pronoun refers)
1. This stack of books is hers.
a. This = d. adjective
b. of = g. preposition
c. books = a. noun
2. The doctor sighed heavily at the patient.
a. sighed = f. verb
b. heavily = e. adverb
c. doctor = a. noun
3. When you call the hospital, please ask for the patient's current address.
a. ask = f. verb
b.you = b. pronoun
c. address = a. noun
4. There are no bruits auscultated.
a. are = ?
b.bruits = a. noun (medical dictionary)
c. auscultated = verb " "
11 out of 12 - not bad!
1, 2, and 3 are correct.
"are" here is an auxiliary verb to be understood with auscultated. The whole verb for this sentence is "are ausculated."
