ok, for all of you who say that it was easy, it`s probably either because you cheated or you got such a bad mark that you are lying now.
congrates to all who did do it without cheating, consider yourself lucky if you passed.

19/20. Lame. They act is if they`re the authority on the English language, yet they don`t even know how to format their sentences right.

"The answer is a metaphor."
Sure. Show me where the answer is a metaphor, and I`ll try not to kick your as5.

hahahaha i got like a 17 out of twenty maybe. I kept retaking the quiz cause the frames with the question wouldnt show up so i just redid all my answers. BUT my last five questions I got right just by looking at the answers. I got All five of them right, I have a better track record without the question than with it. Thank you moco for teaching me, how to take tests. Obviously you can learn how to take tests.
