    1- Many plants can be tricked into flowering earlier or later than normal.........the hours of light.
    a) by artificial adjustment b) are adjusted artificially by c) they are artificially adjusted d) by artificially adjusting
    Why is (d) correct? --(Why not?)-
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    2- When zippers are easy to use, it took almost half a century to perfect the zipper and find a way to manufacture them economically.

    Why is "when zippers" wrong?---(Because it should be "While zippers".)---------------------------------------------------------------
    3- The fossils represent animals or plants that had hard and usually well-developed body structures.
    why is "the fossils" wrong?-------------------------------------------------------------------
    4- Mercury and alcohol are widely used in thermometers because their volume increases uniform with temperature.
    Why is "uniform with" wrong?---("Uniform" is an adjective, not an adverb.)---------------------------------------------------------------------
    5- Oil whale lamps were replaced by kerosene lamps in the 1860's and the multi-million dollar whale industry came to an end.
    Why is "oil whale" wrong?---(Because it should be "whale oil".--------------------------------------------------------------------
    6- When scientists discovered how soap works, it became possible to do synthetic detergents out of petroleum.
    Why is" to do" wrong?----(Because it isn't "to make".)--------------------------------------------------------------------
    7- Graphology, the science of handwriting analysis, has interested people as far back as the 2nd century.
    Why is "has interested" wrong?---(It isn't.)-----------------------------------------------------------------------


    Best regards

    - In 3, why "the fossils" is wrong?
    - In 6 and 7 questions respectively I haven't received a logical answer.

    By the way, why did you delete my sayings in parentheses?!

    Again thanks, leila

    I don't know why "c" in the first question is incorrect.
    Try a sentence using that.

    Regarding question 3, why is "the fossils" wrong?

    I haven't received logical answers to questions 6 and 7.
    I guess that means my answers were illogical.
