The Mortgage Consultant & The Vet's Assistant - May 3

For the second time in a row, we've seen a player flake out on the million dollar question. Will a 30-year-old mortgage consultant from St. Vincent School go the distance? Time to meet ADAM ADORI. He was a baseballer back in the day.

We start the game with the money-maker, Kyle.

How many singular nouns are in the following sentence? "Jeff went to the park to see the flock of seagulls."

That's an actual flock of seagulls, not the New Wave band of the 80s.

We have Jeff and park. That's two. Adam doesn't think flock is a singular. But he peeks. Alana said... 1. "Flock". He goes with three. That's... RIGHT for $5000!

Next question.
