manimal2878: Which is why arguing about grammar is stupid. Grammar is supposed to describe how language is used by a group of people, if they start using it differently, the "rules" of grammar change.
I know more than you: Too many errors in the quiz.For the neighbours question the answer depends on whether or not the garden of the neighbour(s) is owned by one or more persons.

squibbits: I missed one, therefore I quit. I can only Nazi if I can be perfect.
100 Watt Walrus: 7/10But only because #3 (Hilary) was a poorly formed sentence to begin with, and the questions about the parts of grammar are pointlessly pedantic. It's important to use grammar properly. It's not important to know the terms of grammar. Using language correctly can be learned through osmosis, without ever being "book smart" on the subject.My mother was an english teacher. I use language and punctuation correctly, save for the occasional mistake, because I learned language and punctuation correctly. But I don't have the slightest idea what a gerund is, or a participle, or any of the other terms in the last few questions of that test.Nobody needs to know that crap to understand how to use grammar correctly.
mesmer242: 9/10. I don't care if Hilary is a man or woman.
