    Re: Tests

    #1 doesn't make any sense. Are you sure you have copied it correctly?

    #2 and #3 are correct.

    Yes, I'm sure. I was confused too. Maybe they made a mistake there and missed "to be". Maybe it should be like this:

    1. The books were thought to be...

    a) may be sold successfully
    b) had sold successfully
    c) was sold successfully
    d) sold successfully
    e) are sold successfully

    That still doesn't work.

    If there's a mistake in that test, how do you think it's supposed to be?
