I checked the website but I couldn't find the answers to me questions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"Sandy's mid-term grades were passing but hardly perfidious of a great year: she had 3 C's and 2 D's."
So: Sandy's exam results in the middle of the academic year were 3 C's and 2 D's. Now how well or badly do you think she is going to do in her exams at the end of the year, based on those grades? Will she get straight A's? Will she get C's and D's again? Whatever your opinion, do you think that those grades can be described as "deceitful and untrustworthy" (a definition of "perfidious")?
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
