1. Yes.
2. Definitely. (Behind glass)
3. No, majuscule means large.
4. Yes and no. He's coming at full speed. He's not likely to slow down for you so you can hop aboard.

Poor Casiopea's answer:

3. seize the day


Quiz Master's reply:

3. No, majuscule means large.


But..teacher, wasn't majuscule used in Europe, specifically in England, during the 3rd and 6th centuries? Doesn't that make 'carpe deim' the right choice? Hep me, I'm drowning in scule. :shock:
