    I don't understand your question.

    Are you supposed to say whether it's a common noun or a proper noun? Either way, you need to make your best attempt first. Then someone will take a look at your answers.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Or do you mean concrete and abstract nouns?
