**NUMBER CHANGE, March 19th, 2013**



If a sentence is singular, change it to the plural; if it is plural, change it to the singular.

A rabbit is hiding under a shrub in my garden; it seems to sleep there for an hour at least each afternoon. It looks like a patch of snow as the rabbit hasn’t yet started to change colour. When spring comes, I don’t want the rabbit in my garden as it will eat any tender shoot that comes up through the soil.

Rabbits are hiding under the shrubs in our garden; they seem to sleep there for hours almost all afternoon. They look like patches of snow as rabbits haven’t yet started to change colours. When spring comes, we don’t want rabbits in our garden as they will eat all tender shoots that come up through the soil.

There are a lot of rabbits hiding under the shrubs in my neighbours’ garden; they seem to sleep there for several hours every afternoon. They look like patches of snow as the rabbits haven’t yet started to change colour. When spring comes, my neighbours don’t want the rabbits in their garden as they will eat all tender shoots that come up through the soil.

ZEINAB:Close--there are more words that you could make plural, and using "all" doesn't work;-)
YOSUA: Close--there are more words that you could make plural, and using "all" doesn't work;-)
ALEXEY:Close--you need to think about your use of "all";-)

Rabbits are hiding under the shrubs in my garden; they seem to sleep there for hours each afternoon. They haven't started to change colour, so they look like patches of snow. When spring comes, I don't want the rabbits in my garden because they will eat the tender shoots that come up through the soil.

SALEHA:yes, but you need an answer that is a little different from someone else;-)
ZEINAB: Better, but now you have made something plural that shouldn't be plural;-)
VALERIE: Getting there: check for punctuation, a plural that shouldn't be plural, a singular that should be plural,and a subject-verb agreement error;-)
NAZNEEN: A great start--can you change 2 more things to the plural?

Numerous rabbits are hiding under shrubs in mine and my neighbour's garden; they have been sleeping there for two hours at least this afternoon. It looks like countless patches of snow as the rabbits haven't started to change colour. When spring comes, we don't want the rabbits in the gardens as they will eat most of the tender shoots that comes up through the soil.

Second try:

Rabbits were hiding under the shrubs in our gardens; they seem to sleep there for hours each afternoon. They look like patches of snow as the rabbits haven't yet started to change colour. When spring comes, we don't want the rabbits in our gardens as they will eat all tender shoots that comes up through the soil.

Veronica Baig said...

PEGGY: Getting there--two more items should be made plural, and you also have a subject-verb agreement error;-)
VALERIE: Better--but the subject-verb agreement error is still there:-(

Numerous rabbits are hiding under shrubs in mine and my neighbour's garden; they have been sleeping there for two hours at least the last couple afternoons. They look like countless patches of snow as the rabbits haven't started to change colour. When spring comes, we don't want the rabbits in the gardens as they will eat most of the tender shoots that come up through the soil.
