This quiz has 10 sentences, instead of the usual five. I hit the jackpot this week with several examples coming my way. My gratitude goes to a reader who spotted one sentence that shows up on this quiz. I truly enjoy hearing from any reader, even one who takes me to task. It may sting a little to be criticized, but I appreciate people taking the time to read the blog and to write.
As usual, choose the correct (or the better) word of two choices in parentheses. Click here or on the question mark icon to begin.
