  10. Yay! You've got it. The abstract noun is "respect."

    Good is an adjective.

  26. But, A has a helping verb -- "has." It's not a simple past tense.

  34. B is correct. An adjective described things, and red is a word that describes. It's describing the truck, so that is an adjective. So, B is the correct answer to this question.

    1. 👍
    2. 👎
  35. Yes, B. Truck is the noun that's being described.
