Which cat?                 How many pieces?           What kind of chicken?

In English, adjectives can come after be or before nouns.

  1. after be:  Ex: Canada is big.
  2. before noun: Ex: Canada is a big country.
  3. after be: Ex: Elvis Presley was very popular.
  4. before noun: Elvis Presley was a very popular singer.
