    I suspect that this is another homework assignment, shi.shi.

    Thank you dear,

    All those 4 posts I've just sent you were actually of a test I'd taken in June 25, 2012.
    I truly got 37 out of 60. My teacher did not provide me the answer key to see what the correct answers are and she just quoted my score. That's all.

    Now I do not really know what my errors/mistakes are.

    OK, I can provide you my own answers in '' Blue Color'' all in a post.

    I can't speak for anyone else, but if you do as you suggested and mark in blue each word you think is an error, I will be happy to take a look at it.

    Default Correction - My Answers

    According to whether we are male or female, young or old and(must be added) occasional or regular road-users, every one of us has distinctly personal views about the habits of other kinds of drivers. Men thinks ( s must be omitted) woman can’t drive, lorry drivers regard car drivers such ( must be omitted) as lunatics, while no one over thirty years off ( ''of'' is correct) age thinks anyone under thirty should be aloud on road at all.


    Statistics shows that Britain’s safest motorists are those between forty– five and fifty-four year’s (years) old, they are having often more practice and experience and have became more cautious. Drivers are (SHOULD BE OMITTED) under twenty-four are five times more than (SHOULD BE OMITTED) likely to be involved in a crash. The figures also revealed that women drivers cause very fewer accidents than their male counterparts and less likely to break the law. Britain’s eleven million women drivers are accounting for lease than ten per cent of all their traffic offenses, even including relatively minor ones like the illegal parking and obstruction. Male drivers on the other hand were responsible for the fast majority of moving traffic offenses which occurred during the last twelve months.

Drivers are (SHOULD BE OMITTED) under twenty-four are five times more than (SHOULD BE OMITTED) likely to be involved in a crash. The figures also revealed that women drivers cause very far fewer accidents than their male counterparts and are less likely to break the law. Britain’s eleven million women drivers are accounting account for lease less than ten per cent of all their traffic offenses, even including relatively minor ones like the illegal parking and obstruction. Male drivers on the other hand were are responsible for the fast vast majority of moving traffic offenses which occurred during the last twelve months.

    See above. I have made amendments - some strikethroughs and some additions in red.
