Hi grade 7C ladies,

Below there are a few questions to practice for the test.

Decide whether the following statements are true or false. Then explain your choice.

1. The sentence “Liliane would rather teaching in a boys school.” is incorrect.

2. The sentence “Marta would rather chicken.” is correct.

3. We always use “to” when we use “would rather” to compare two things.

4. We can say “Mr. Anderson would prefer live in the real world to live in the matrix.”

5. A verb or a noun can follow “would rather”.

 

Below you will find the person in charge of answering the questions.

    The first sentences is true because after “would rather” or “rather” we only use the verb in the base form. (No gerunds or nouns.) In the example it said that the sentence (“Liliane would rather teaching in a boys school.” is incorrect) , so I said that, that afirmation is true.

    * Liliane would rather teach in a boys school.

    1 is fake. we use rather when we are talking about an action, in the sentence we can see that. It is also corrrect the way it is write because it is not followed by a “to”.

    it is correct because when you use rather you can leave the verb in the base for or without a verb

    we can’t say that, the real sentence would be mr. Anderson would prefer TO leave in the real world to leave in the matrix.

    it is because when you use prefer you have to use to because before is a noun

    • Ok Tati, good try! But there are a few problems.

      “leave” and “live” are two different verbs! There are no nouns here!

      See Isa’s answer please

    rather must be followed by a verd and the verd must be in vase form.
    for examples:
    they rather have a coffe in the cafetiria

    • Good work Manu! Remember to tell if the statements is true or false!

      Also some corrections!

      “Would rather” must be followed by a verb and the verb must be in base form.
      for example:
      They’d rather have a coffee in the cafeteria

    The statement is incorrect because when we use “would prefer” for comparing two things we use gerunds and “to”. So the correct form would be:
    “Mr. Anderson would prefer living in the real world to living in the matrix.”

    • Good work Isa! 🙂

      Just one correction!

      The statement is incorrect because when we use “would prefer” to compare two things, we use gerunds and “to”.

    False because we only use after “prefer” Gerunds, infinitives, and nous

    5. It is false because the only thing that can follow “would rather” is a verb in it’s base form, never a noun. If you want a preference to be followed by a noun you should use “would prefer”.

    • Good explanation; some corrections though! 🙂

    no a verb or a noun can’t be follow by would rather. Example: valeria would rather walk to school. Here we are using would rather before the verb

  11. 1. The sentence “Liliane would rather teaching in a boys school.” is incorrect. (True) Because when we use ”would rather” we use the base form of the verb.
    The correct sentence will be:
    ”Liliane would rather teach in a boys school.”

  12. The sentence number one “Liliane would rather teaching in a boys school.” is incorrect (it’s true that the statement is wrong) because after using “would rather” or “rather” we use the verb in the base form, not with gerunds or nouns.

    The sentence “Marta would rather chicken” is correct
    False. Because if you use “would rather” you have to use a verb in the base form after it.
    The correct form would be: Marta would rather (eat, have, etc) chicken.

    3. The sentence is false because when we are comparing two things and we use “would rather”, we use “than”.

    We always use “to” when we use “would rather” to compare two things. The sentence is (False) because when we use ”would rather” we use than when we are going to compare two things.

  16. 2. The sentence “Marta would rather chicken.” is correct.
    Is incorrect because after “rather” we don´t use a noun. The correct sentence could be:
    “Marta would rather eat/have chicken.”
