Parts of Speech Test (Hard)

Parts of Speech Test

Test your knowledge of adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, and pronouns.

Beware! This test is harder than it looks. If a pronoun is also an adjective (e.g., his), an adjective is also an adverb (e.g., fast), or an adjective is also a pronoun (e.g., little), then it could be classified as either in this test (but not both). Check all the alternatives before you select. There are only three correct answers.
