re: grammar quiz. I got 12 of 14 right. how did you do?

I got 12 of 14 as well.

I also got 12 of 14. I missed the following:

  1. Pride

Correct answer: Abstract and collective

You answered: Abstract

  1. Which sentence is written in the active voice?

Correct answer: The fire had destroyed all life

You answered: The destruction of life was caused by the fire

I should have known #11.

So BJ and Norm, which two did you get wrong?

Pride. How is that collective I'd like to know? grr. I think abstract was right.

Also got Antonym wrong. embarrassing.... oops.

I didn't get that either, and then suddenly it dawned on me that the collective refers to a pride of lions.

And, yeah, I felt really stupid about missing the active voice question.

Yessss. 14 of 14.

DAMN YOU, PRIDE!!!

Always failing me. It's only shame from now on for me, as it's always been.

Also, I had a 1/3 chance to nail what the hell a gerund was. I remember "gerundio" in Spanish, but we have like eleventy kinds of conjugations, who remembers.

All in all, 12/14
