Jane Austen wrote Pride and Prejudice , a novel that in 2005 was adapted into a film starring Keira Knightley.
I was solving a question in which you have to find all the nouns in a sentence, and in the above sentence, 2005 is considered a noun, which I thought was an adjective. Can someone explain?
A noun is a person, place or thing. In the sentence, “I graduated in 2015,” the word”2015″ refers to a year, which is a thing and so is a noun. If you said “He is a 2015 graduate” then “2015” is an adjective modifying “graduate.”
