    Are You Grammatically Incorrect?

    I know I always have grammar problems

    Here is a quiz to find out if you are grammatically incorrect.

    Grammar Test

    The funny thing is I did better than I thought I would... Maybe I shouldn't admit that though

    Not bad
    But you may want to think twice about pursuing a career as a copy editor. You got 7/9 correct.

    Cali, are you still too sick to go to work? I figured you'd be gone...

    I got 7/9 as well, although I'd like to contest my two wrong answers

    Yeah, I called her last night to make sure she'd have time to find someone else. It really sucks, as these were the last two November days I had scheduled

    7/9 for me to/too. The rule for the question of is/were was really pedantric, I thought. I also feel badly about not felling bad.

    I thought I would do worse than this!

    One answer was a bit odd though...

    Wow!4/9 Horrible! I really thought I knew my grammer better than that! I would debate one of the sentences though...I think it changed tenses mid sentence.

    I actually did know that. I do not spell check my posts very often...I am a hasty poster. Have you seen my post for the spelling quiz. Hehe
