I dun rite sew gud

Hrm, I wonder which ones I got wrong.

Advanced
You scored 93% Beginner, 93% Intermediate, 100% Advanced, and 72% Expert!
You have an extremely good understanding of beginner, intermediate, and advanced level commonly confused English words, getting at least 75% of each of these three levels' questions correct. This is an exceptional score. Remember, these are commonly confused English words, which means most people don't use them properly. You got an extremely respectable score.

Thank you so much for taking my test. I hope you enjoyed it!

For answers to the Beginner section only (the first ten questions), visit my blog: http://shortredhead78.blogspot.com/. I will post the answers to the other questions as soon as possible.

... huh? This seems to indicate an error. I'll update when they fix it.


What's wrong with "She hardly reached her sales goal.."? One can certainly say "we hardly escaped" to mean "we escaped with great effort".
You could definitely get away with using the word hardly in this sentence; however, the meaning would be unclear.

Is it because the accurate use of "hardly" is now archaic due to the ironic slang interjection "hardly"?


Apropos de rien: Here's a meme courtesy of miajesbar.
If you could rescue one of the Lost castaways from the island right now, leaving all the rest there, who would it be, and why?

I'd rescue Claire, because unless the rescue is carried out by Project Quantum Leap, her baby would most likely come with her. Two for one! W00t!

You forgot the part where the rest of them have to die on the island!

Dude, don't worry about it. If you cliff me, I'll probably land safely and, like, the cliff'll collapse or something.

Hurley is the everyman of Lost.
When he says "I want some friggin answers!", you want to jump up and yell: "Me too!">
(Actually, I was in #teunc, and we did.)

It's fun to get better score than most native speakers ;)
The statistics are bugged, everyone gets the same, so it doesn't really matter.

Only the percentile scores are bugged
The raw scores mean... sumfink.
