    Are you sure about #4?
    I think the answer is (D).
    (I find #1 very strange.)

    Re: Structure grammar

    Either you made some mistakes transcribing the test questions or the test prep document you're using contains some errors. Please review questions 1 and 4 in particular.

    Re: Structure grammar

    Your copying might well have been correct, but the questions are not. The correct answer for 4 is D. There is no correct answer in 1.

    Please review question 1 again. I think it should be "1)Anyone who has ever pulled weeds from a garden _________ roots firmly anchor plants to the soil."

    If it doesn't say that, the editor made a mistake.
