A grammar teacher is giving a lesson about how to use short words, like I, is, the, and, etc. in a sentence correctly. The teacher tells the class to use a sentence with at least 5 short words. One boy raises his hand and says, "I is-". The teacher said, "No, always say 'I am'." So the student says his sentence with "I am" at the beginning, but this makes the sentence incorrect. What could the boy have been trying to say?
AnswerAmong others, he could have been trying to say, "I is the ninth letter in the alphabet" or, "I is the first letter of igloo."
