    Quantifiers

    Quantifiers are words that tell us how much or many of something we have. For example, in these sentences, the first words are quantifiers:

    One of the cars is red.
    Two of the cars are red.
    Half of the cars are red.
    Some of the cars are red.
    All of the cars are red.
    Each of the cars is red.
    Enough of the cars are red.

    Many TestMagic students find quantifiers tricky because quantifiers can also be pronouns (if they are used without the nouns). Look at the following sentences. Notice that they are very similar to the previous sentences, except that the quantifiers are used WITHOUT the "of":

    One is red.
    Two are red.
    Half are red.
    Some are red.
    All are red.
    Each is red.
    Enough are red.

    Here is the TestMagic list of quantifiers:

    0%, 10%, 50%, 100%, etc.
    , , etc.
    1, 2, 3, 4, etc.
    one, two, three, four, etc.
    one half, one third, one fourth, one quarter, one fifth, etc.

    Hi Testmagic (you are Erin?)!

    It's great as I know you!
    You can put some examples for these quantifiers, cannot you?
    Thanks a lot.

    I hope that I can give examples for each in the future, but I think it will take me some time.

    Are there any in particular that you'd like examples of?

    Hello,
    What part of sentence are quantifiers?
    Also, as an example, the word various could be used as an adjective, couldn't it?
    What is the difference?
