    Cool requisite & requiremrnt application

    Dear friends,
    According to "check your english vocabulary for IELTS", Written by ''Rawdon Wyatt" and in page 1, we can see test below:
    3. It is a .......................... of the university that you attend an interview.
    A.requirement B.requisite C. requiem.
    now, my question is that why A is true and not B?

    Because it should be a noun (requirement) and not an adjective (adjective).

    I think that's a typo. billmcd meant to write, "Because it should be a noun (requirement) and not an adjective (requisite)".

    Actually, 'requisite' can be used as a noun, and would fit in the original question, so it's a bad question.

    However, I think many speakers would agree with bill that 'requisite' is more commonly used as an adjective.

    Thumbs up Re: requisite & requiremrnt application

    dear friends,
    from above, thus, I found that the question is essentially problematic, and is not a true one.
    best regards.

    Re: requisite & requiremrnt application

    I've learnt something here again. I did not initially think that "requisite" was a noun although I use the word "prerequisite" a lot.
