    Exclamation do you see a mistake?

    Hi. Please, can anyone help me? I'm Polish, so my English isn't very good. That's why I'm asking for help.
    Here's the test. Please, can anyone check is there any mistake in the test? It can be typographic error, grammatical error or possibility that there's not only one correct answer but two or more, or possibility that the correct answer is not correct. What else.... I mean, anything except punctuation error.
    I've already found one - in a question 48. instead of "They" is written "Thy". Wouldn't be a problem but a word "Thy" has a different meaning. It is an archaic second person singular pronoun in English. So in this case the correct answer couldn't be correct.

    Note: The underline answers are marked as correct.

    The text were written by people on the same family holiday. Read texts A-D and choose the correct answer.

    A.
    Dear Jane
    Nice to hear from you glad you're all OK. You asked about our holiday. Well, it was nice of those holiday it's best to forget. It started off badly when the flight to Athens was for hours late. Then the airline lost on of our bags. John was furious as it had all his snorkelling stuff in it! At least the village was nice pretty little white houses and some friendly local restaurants, but we were about 5 km along the coast from there.

    B.
    Dear Grandad
    Stuck in the middle of nowhere and there's nothing to do. Weather horrible so we can't even go swimming. Spend all day playing cards boring! Wish we'd gone to New York again this year the shopping there is great!
    See you soon.
    Love
    Chloe


    C.
    Dear Sir or Madam
    I am writing to complain about the inferior standard of the accomodation on our recent holiday
    with your company.
    In your Greek Island Escape brochure, you say that all accomodation has a balcony and sea
    view. Ours had neither. What is more, it was one-room studio flat, not at all suitable for our
    family of two adults and two teenagers. Although there were two sofas which became double
    beds, to describe it as four-bedded accomodation is extremely misleading.


    D.
    Dear Mr Frazer

    Ref: TRP9142

    Further to your insurance claim for compension for lost baggage, I am pleased to enclose a cheque for 230.

    I hope you will find this satisfactory and we look forward to helping you with your holiday insurance needs in the future.



    47.The family went ............
    a. to a city.
    b. to an island.
    c. to a village.
    d. to New York.

    48.Thy stayed ............. .
    a. in a hotel
    b. with a family.
    c. in an apartment.
    d. in a small house.

    49.Their main activities were ............. .
    a. writing postcards and letters.
    b. swimming and snorkelling
    c. shopping and going to restaurants.
    d. playing indoors games.

    By the way, I've got a question to ex. 45. Why is it so interesting a girl ? Shouldn't it be so interesting girl or I think the best would be such an interesting girl?

    And thank you so much for your help. I really appreciate that.
