A quicky, only 12 questions but tougher than some.
If you don’t want to read two of the questions and some comments about them, don’t read the following.
I got the following one right but it seems iffy:
“This is nowhere near good enough.” What part of speech is “near”?
“Adverb qualifying an adjective-phrase” is the answer. I would think a case could be made that “nowhere near” doesn’t work in the same way as the adjective “near”, and that in this case near is an adjective just as it does in “This is nowhere near Idaho”, which I suppose implies that “good enough” is nounish. Mostly, though, I think it would be better not to break “nowhere near” up into separate parts of speech. But I got the right answer so what the hey.
“This is nowhere near good enough.” What part of speech is “nowhere”?
The correct answer is “Adverb qualifying an adverb”, and I got this one wrong.
