Jerry didn't do _________ wrong.

A.something
B.nothing
C.anything
D.everything
Answer and Feedback
Answer:C
Feedback:Something, anybody, everyone, etc. are indefinite pronouns. We use -body, -one, -thing, -where to refer to people, places and things in a general way without saying exactly who or what they are. All the indefinite pronouns that are given in the test ANSWERS end in –thing (something, nothing, anything, everything), thus, they all refer to things.Indefinite pronouns using some are used in affirmative sentences to describe an indefinite quantity, the indefinite pronouns with every are used in affirmative sentences to describe a complete quantity. And the pronouns with no are used affirmative sentences to describe an absence. Indefinite pronouns with no are often used in affirmative sentences with a negative meaning, but these are nevertheless not negative sentences because they are lacking the word not. Any and the indefinite pronouns formed with it can also be used in affirmative sentences with a meaning that is close to every: whichever person, whichever place, whichever thing, etc.Negative sentences can only be formed with the indefinite pronouns that include any. The test sentence is a negative one: Jerry didn't do….. wrong. Thus, we can choose only ANSWER 3: anything.
