Today’s quiz is a mix of verb choices and homonyms. All of the quiz sentences come from news or feature stories in The N&O in the past week. In one quiz question, I included the sentence before the sentence in question to give a clue about the word choice. I hope that helps.

UPDATE: A reader and a colleague have pointed out a different reading on the sentence in question 4 on the quiz. See what you think when you take the quiz. Unfortunately, the quiz-writing software won’t allow me to make two answers as correct or incorrect. If you have time, answer question 4 both ways and see the explanations. Please feel free to leave a comment about that question or any other question on the quiz.
Also, see my post from Sunday night about “for free.”
