    Re: Readers can use several general types of word-recognition

    Posts like this are really impractical for us to deal with. The list of answers stretches down the page and we constantly have to scroll up and down, backwards and forwards between the original text and the set of answers.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Readers can use several general types of word-recognition

    I agree with all of your answers except 12. For that one, I would choose 3, but 2 is also possible. There are a couple of typos in the text, but it is too long to go back and find them

    Re: Readers can use several general types of word-recognition

    Why do you reject #4 in question 12?

    "Of" is incorrect.

    Re: Readers can use several general types of word-recognition

    "Assume" doesn't fit there. "Encounter" means to run into. That fits. "Words" should not be capitalized.
