    Re: Vocab/Grammar Test 2

    As I wrote in another thread, shi.shi, we don't help with homework assignments.

    Re: Vocab/Grammar Test 2

    Your first line should have read "Please help me to choose the best answer..."

    In addition to 5jj's comment about homework assignments, I would add that any post with so many questions together is unlikely to be dealt with as it would be far too time-consuming for volunteers.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Vocab/Grammar Test 2

    Thank you dears,

    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.

    Then select two or three at a time, and post them in separate threads, with the answers you think are correct. I have closed this thread, because as ems wrote, most of us haven't got time to deal with so many questions at once. There is also the point that responses to more than a couple of different questions in one thread can become very confusing.
