Hello,

I am a beginner to prepare for GMAT. Since I am a non-native speaker, Grammar basics are challenging to me.
I gave prep test and scored 560 (23 V and 44 Q), hence I have started study from Grammar basics. It's challenging to complete all the grammar and implement it on SC questions. However, I want to share my prep journey with all other aspiring candidates.

Hence I will be posting one Grammar Tidbits regularly in this forum to that those tidbits will be useful for me or others as well.

Cheers

Nouns

A noun can be a person, place, or thing. Nouns can be the actor of a sentence (as the subject), a receiver of the action (as the object/complement), or contained in a prepositional phrase to add more information to the idea of the sentence.

The Noun Phrase A noun phrase is a group of words that ends with a noun and can contain determiners (a, an, the, these, etc.), adjectives and adverbs. Both subjects and complements often consist of noun phrases. A prepositional phrase is NOT considered a noun phrase.

Count and Non-Count Nouns A noun that can be counted is called a count noun.
chair – one chair, two chairs, three chairs… boy – one boy, two boys, three boys… dog – one dog, two dogs, three dogs…
A noun that cannot be counted is called a non-count noun.
coffee – you cannot say: one coffee, two coffees, etc.
However, you can make some non-count nouns countable by placing them into a countable container.
Can of coffee – one can of coffee, two cans of coffee…

Hey aditiverma1990. Did you try out the official GMATclub grammar handbook?? Incase you haven't check it out here: https://gmatclub.com/forum/ultimate-gma ... it=grammar

It's free and covers everything that you need to know. Go through it once and apply the concepts on questions :)

Hi aditiverma1990,

What textbook are you using now? Mastering grammar basics is a great idea, you'll have to make a lot of gains initially. GMAT grammar revolves around such topics as topics subject-verb, parallelism, pronouns, modifiers. However, keep in mind that it's also about the meaning of the sentence.
