B. wo among you is a butcher, a baker, or a candlestick maker?
C. Listen, my children, and you shall hear.
D. the legislature met in secret session.

is it (B)?

  • english - ,

    D

    "you" is a pronoun, not a noun.

    "legislature" is a group of people, like a pod of whales, or a pride of lions. Maybe not a perfect analogy, since we don't speak of "a legislature of politicians", but (C) is out, because "children" is just a plural noun.

  • english - ,

    D is the answer, collective noun is a special class, name groups [things] composed of members [usually people]. Examples: army
    audience,board,cabinet,class,committee,
    company,corporation etc...
