After having gone to the effort of learning the rules of gender and number, it is annoying to find that there are a few nouns that just don’t follow the rules; some are masculine, but have feminine endings (il problema), others are feminine but have masculine endings (la mano), and then there are those which have a singular ending even in the plural form (le uova).  Test your knowledge of these ‘outlaw nouns’ by trying to guess their plural or singular forms.
