Uncountable nouns are things like substances, and ideas and concepts. Money is a concept and we can't count money. All we can talk about is money, or the money. If we want to count money, we have to count parts of it such as coins, dollars, euros. Some things can be both countable and uncountable like hair for instance. I have hair on my head and I can pull out some of the hairs. This challenge will test your understanding of countable and uncountable nouns with 20 random questions to be answered in 10 minutes or less. Good luck!

In linguistics, a countable noun is a noun that can be modified by a numeral and that occurs in both singular and plural forms and can be used with quantifiers like everyeachseveral, etc. Cat is a countable noun. We can say there is a cat in the room or there are some cats in the room. We can say I haven't got any cats or I have got some cats. When we ask questions, we can ask have you got any cats. A negative answer would be no, I have not got any cats.
