i bow before your superior grasp of the english language! my score was 86/100/93/66. in the beginner section, i thought that perhaps if someone had an iron stomach (ie could eat food from a street vendor in rural china and not get sick), that could be characterized as having a hardy appetite, and i still don't really get the distinction between wishing and hoping someone would study for a test.

so i missed two out of 10 in the first section. shouldn't that be a score of 80%? either i'm missing something or this was really written by an english major (ie no math skills).

if you like grammar and linguistics, check out ruth walker's weekly CSM blog. i enjoy reading it, though i find her frequent citing of number of google hits as a measure of significance highly irritating.

Some of the questions had more than one blank in them. Although they were combined into one question, each blank was its own answer and scored separately. Thus, in a question with two blanks, you could get either zero points, one point, or two points. So, each page was not out of ten points, so your score does not have to be a multiple of ten.
