    Re: Help me to choose the correct words

    I think there is a typing mistake in your answer list: 'had' should be there, and it is needed in two of the blanks, which are currently wrong. There are several other typing mistakes that make this difficult to read.

    Thank goodness for Mister Micawber's keen eye. Please see Post #2--which I missed. Note that, 4. and 11. refer to the past, so 'has (2)' in your list above should be had:

    4. In the years that it was first seen, 'It is a Wonderful Life' had come to be regarded by many as a great American film.

    11. The great film director Frank Capra recognised that the basic storyhad everything needed for a good film.
