    Corn, ice and salt are uncountable nouns. 玉米,冰和鹽 是 無數名詞。

    a piece of corn , 2 pieces of corn

    a piece of Ice , 2 pieces of ice

    a bag of salt , 2 bags of saltcard is countable noun, so

    one card, 2 cards

    2010-01-20 14:00:57 補充:

    you can write it another way, make sure NO "s" is added to either corn, ice or salt.

    2 boxes of corn

    2 boxes of ice

    2 boxes of salt

    2 boxes of cards

    yes. Ices(冰淇淋), corns(穀粒;胡椒籽) are countable nouns , so we can write it as

    a box of ices.(冰淇淋)

    a bag of corns(穀粒;胡椒的籽)

    a number of corns(雞眼)

    but NOT salts(鹽類)

    salts means different kinds of salts.

    it is correct to write it as:

    2 boxes of smelling salts(嗅鹽;阿摩尼亞)

    please confirm them with your teacher.

    A B D 不應有 s,所以不能成為對的答案

    剩下cards 文法上成立

    此外,文意方面, A B D 一般不用box

    that's becoz ice, corn, salt are all uncountable nouns...

    only card is countable.

    that means "s" cannot be added after the noun

  • 1 decade ago

    A. ices

    B. corns 全部都係唔加s,但他又加s,所以錯。答案係C.cards

    D. salts

    a,b,d 都是不可數名詞

    其實應該係"a stack of cards"先啱...

    這是一個很差的題目,因為除了cards係正確英文外,其他都是錯(沒有)的英文字。

    所以不用有條題目,

    只看答案:

    a) ices

    b) corns

    c) cards

    d) salts

    都只有c)是正確字,根本與box冇關。

    設計條題目的老師或出版社得零分,咁低band點教出識英文既學生呀。

    歡迎轉載這回答給出題者。

    放 [ 任何東西 ] 在盒內都可以的. 沒規定是C. cards.的.

    我查過yahoo字典全部名詞都有複數,部份是可數的.出題目那位老師應穫得平反.

    應獲得平反!
