  • The Arabic sentence above means "write the dual and the plural of each of the following nouns”.
  • Please separate each of the two forms dual and plural with a space.
  • Note that there are masculine nouns only, such as (أَقْوَى), (مُصْطَفَى) and (قَاصِي) regarding which you are required to find out the masculine dual and plural forms only. There are also some feminine words only, such as (رَضْوَى), (دُنْيَا), and (سُعْدَى). Others are masculine in the singular and dual forms but feminine in the plural, such as (مُسْتَشْفَى).
