Complete the given narrative, by filling the blank with the correct option.

The smell of the freshly baked cookies reminded me of _____________ days when I used to visit my grandmother’s house. 

A. those

 B. this 

C. these 

D. that

Answer as written by the student:

The correct answer is A. those

The smell of the freshly baked cookies reminded me of those days when I used to visit my grandmother’s house. 

Step-by-step explanation of the answer:

In this question, you have to complete the given narrative by filling the blank with the correct option. πŸ“

    • A narrative is a story or an account of a series of events. A narrative usually has a clear and engaging tone and style. πŸ“š
    • The options for filling the blank are: A. those, B. this, C. these, or D. that. These words are demonstrative pronouns that point to something or someone. πŸ™‹‍♂οΈπŸ™‹‍♀️
    • There are four demonstrative pronouns in English: this, that, these, and those. This and that are used for singular nouns that are near or far from the speaker. These and those are used for plural nouns that are near or far from the speaker. πŸ…°οΈπŸ…±οΈπŸ†Ž
    • In this case, the noun that follows the blank is “days”, which is a plural noun that refers to more than one day. Therefore, you have to use either these or those. However, you have to choose the one that matches the distance and the tense of the sentence. πŸ™‹‍♀️
    • Let’s see why each option is correct or incorrect: πŸ•΅οΈ‍♂️
      • A. those βœ…
        • This option is correct because it implies that the days are far from the speaker in time and space. This makes sense, because the speaker is reminiscing about the past when they used to visit their grandmother’s house. βœ…
      • B. this ❌
        • This option is incorrect because it implies that the day is near the speaker in time and space. This does not make sense, because the speaker is not talking about the present day or a nearby place. ❌
      • C. these ❌
        • This option is incorrect because it implies that the days are near the speaker in time and space. This does not make sense either, because the speaker is not talking about the current days or a nearby place. ❌
      • D. that ❌
        • This option is incorrect because it implies that the day is far from the speaker in time and space. This does not make sense as well, because the speaker is not talking about a single day or a distant place. ❌

Therefore, the correct option to fill the blank is A. those. βœ…
