    Where's the mistake?

    I'm a TESOL trainee and have recently been asked to correct these two sentences:

    "She's very sensible. She's very easily embarrassed."

    There's supposed to be only one mistake made by the speaker. Should 'sensitive' have been used instead of 'sensible'?

    Thanks for help!

    Re: Where's the mistake?

    I'd agree with you, but if the instructions say to correct two sentences and only one has a mistake, I'd be tempted to correct the instructions, instead.
