A colleague told me my last quiz was too easy. He said some of the quizzes I have done for my staff sessions have been much tougher. Today I decided to draw on those for the blog quiz. Unlike the sentences in the usual blog quizzes, which I draw from real examples in my editing or in print, these sentences are entirely made up. That makes illustrating problems much easier!Today’s quiz comprises 10 sentences, all having to do with verb choice. I hope it proves challenging and helpful.Click here or on the question mark icon to begin.
