  • English -

    Sorry, I made a mistake for #1, the correct answer is -

    I think (there, their, they're) son is the quarterback of the team. ---> "there"


    Question #2.

    She performed (good, well) on the balance beam. ---> "well"

    (In this sentence well is an adverb that modifying the verb "performed")

  • English -

    You're right about 9. She performed well.

    For # 1, consider these examples:

    There are many players on the team.
    I live over there.

    Their house has white siding.
    Have you seen their dog?

    They're going to Disney World.
    I think they're awesome!

    What about capitol and capital?

  • English -

    Sorry I made the same mistake again for #1

    I think (there, their, they're) son is the quarterback of the team. ---> "their"

    "Their" is a 3rd person pronoun, but in this sentence it used as a possessive adjective.


    Question #7

    The streets surrounding the (capital, capitol) will be closed today. ---> “capitol

    "Capital is the name of the most important city in the country. (2) You start a sentence with a capital letter or name a proper noun with a capital letter. (3) The capital of a bussiness.

    Example:

    1. Georgetown is the capital of Guyana.

    2. My name is Mithra.

    3. The money that you have when u start a business.


    “Capitol” refers to a building in which a legislative assemble meets.

    E.g. Parliament building
