Demonstrative Adjectives Quiz

Level: Pre-intermediate 

This demonstrative adjectives quiz tests your knowledge on the use of this, that, these and those

If we are referring to someone or something that is close to us, we use this for singular or these for plural. If it far away from us, we use that for singular and those for plural. Demonstrative adjectives are used with nouns.

For example:

  • This pencil isn't working (the pencil is nearby and it's singular)
  • I really want to eat these chocolates. (The chocolates are close by and it's plural)
  • That television is expensive. (the TV is far away and it's singular)
  • Those people are running away. (the people are far away)
