Today’s quiz has the usual mix of word choice problems. Choose the correct (or better) of two words in parentheses in each sentence. When you finish the five sentences, you can move on to see which ones you answered correctly and read short explanations.

If you run across a sentence in print that would make a good example for a future quiz, I’d love to hear from you.
