    A Thread for Dondrei. (BBC Grammar Quiz)

    10 questions on grammar

    I shocked myself. 9/10. Usually I don't think mine is very correct.

    Re: A Thread for Dondrei. (BBC Grammar Quiz)

    I scored 7/10 and I wasn't sure at all about three correct answers. I had to guess about the which/that question and two others needed ruling out the other two possibilities which looked even sillier.

    I think there were two silly questions in the test. The question about Hilary's gender is BS. I don't think the reasoning for the right answer makes any sense. Second, why is it a grammar question to know about Churchill's point of view on a grammar issue?

    Of course, that may be seen as a sign of my envy about not being an English grammar geek. I'm better at spelling .

    That's the one I missed as well.

    It's not; he supposedly asked the question in such a way as to include the flaw which he was making light of. So you're identifying the flaw made deliberately within the quote.

    Is it a bad sign if I can't actually find the quiz?

    I did find a very lol-worthy article written by Dan Brown though.

    Interestingly I scored 8/10. Had to guess about a third as I do not know what grammar terms like noun or gerund are. I never had proper English education you see, I'm selftaught. (and rubbish at it at times)

    Re: A Thread for Dondrei. (BBC Grammar Quiz)

    It was some silly flash nonsense, so It worked fine on the computer.

    I got a 6/10...meh. Like vivi, I don't know all the proper terms for stuff. I missed the Hilary one as well, which I do think was nonsense. I almost picked male, because it just seemed like it had to be a trick and that would be the answer if it was.

    I also missed the Churchill one, couldn't really figure out what they even were asking.

    I don't agree with the chair question "I was sat in the chair" is proper. It's just a different meaning than they they wanted it to have.
