    reporting errors in articles/exercises on your site

    I think I have spotted an error in reading comprehension 27 but I would like to double check and don't know how to do this - who should I contact?

    You don't state the source of the article so I have only been able to check it by pasting large amounts of text into a search engine. This produced a lot of sites which have clearly cut and pasted the exercise (including the error). I have however found what looks like a copy of the original text here: http://www.nokhbegaan.com/upload/s91-92/hemato/p17.pdf

    The error is answer no 4 I think it should be 'unstable' but your site says the correct answer is 'stable' Could you please let me know whether there is an error or not. Or how I should report it

    Many thanks

    In the text to which you provided a link none of the multiple choice answers is "stable" or "unstable". Please be clearer about where to find this question, or perhaps just cut the question and paste it into your reply.

    I can't fathom this one either. This is the Reading Comprehension page. There aren't 27 exercises so which one are you referring to as "Reading Comprehension 27"?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thanks for you question, but I think stable is correct- the problem which HIV is that the proteins are changing, so if you can find a stable protein, you can target a particular area of the virus. Attacking the stable parts will bring results, not the unstable parts because these will mutate and change. The stable bits of th virus offer a non-moving target to medicines, but the unstable parts are moving.

    But just to be crystal clear, "this one" was not a mistake. As you explained "stable" is the correct answer.
