So me and my dad were watching 'Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader" yesterday. They got to second grade english and the question was

"How many common nouns are in the following sentence: Billy sharped the crayon to draw a picture of a dragon for his teacher"

Me and my dad emidiatly said 5.
But then the lady answered 4 and got the question right.
I dont see how i got it wrong - if i did. Any ideas? =\

I'm pretty sure the nouns are: Billy, crayon, dragon and teacher.
That's what I think anyway. :S

It says "COMMON NOUNS" so in the sentence that is in question, the common nouns are crayon, picture, dragon, and teacher. Billy is a proper noun.

This.


Oh, that series. Of course I am. :razz:

Seriously though, those questions seem really easy to me. At least half of them, that is.

But clearly, Mystery Mew isn't. :P

They're suppose to be, but then they might be to easy and that's when people get them wrong.

Billy sharped the crayon to draw a picture of a dragon for his teacher.

Notice how the guy said common nouns, not nouns in total. Billy is a proper noun. That compared to other questions the show had was easy.

However, some of the questions I don't know how children have learned.

It's four not five. I would be considered a 5th grader.

It's fine if you got a question wrong :P. I probably would have missed it on live TV.

Thank you for posting this, I was about the bash my head in. >:

I honestly cant stand this show, I used to like it at first but it just isn't something that sucks you in. Not a lot of suspense.
