This quiz was actually very helpful. As extra practice I feel as though it helped. This material is really not that hard.
I don't understand anything this stuff is stupid and I have more of a chance doing the stuff I do in math class in the real world then this. who made these things up anyways! you don't need these things to write a book all u need is good grammar good imagination and a good story plot
This was AWESOME. not.
I have to take a quiz on this crap tomorrow! What is the point in these things existing? Overwhelming crap like this is the reason America does not have a highly educated work force like the other countries.
the creator of this quiz is a mad person. I am ready to take his English class!
