I am not even going to attempt this.

I hated school and seldom went, i wanted to be a joiner and that's what i am, after years of being corrected online by the Grammar Bullies I've learned to deal with it and its water off a ducks back most of the time, i just try my best to follow the rules in the link below :).

I was terrible at grammar when I was at school, so was very surprised to score 14....as long as you can make yourself understood Martin, I don't think it matters. I've never studied French grammar which I think is even more complex and not that essential if you are just shopping in the supermarket.....

My wife scored 15 Pete, she's the brains i am good with my hands :D,

I've only been using a computer for the last 7/8 years, my grammar is lots better than it was but i find it hard at times and have a long way to go and will never get there, but i will keep trying my best,

I have found it funny in the past with the Grammar Bullies having a dig at me, when my wife has got on the keyboard and pulled there grammer to bits:)

A quibble - Q4 needs correcting - "The students thought, their homework was hard" should not have a comma. If the students were referring to other students' homework, then a colon would be acceptable.

I wouldn't put any punctuation there but replace the comma with the word "that".

OK everyone, now go back and put every answer in wrongly. The worst I've managed to get is 12 out of 15.

Shurely shome mishtake?

Not really, many of the questions have more than one correct answer

I clicked on the middle one every time and got 15.

Maybe they were the right ones.:)

Most odd just clicked on the top one every time I still got 15.
