Today’s quiz is one of those that a regular commenter has called a "spelling" quiz. True, some of the choices in the sentences on the quiz are between two homonyms, but at least one sentence will ask quiz takers to choose from two words that are often confused but have different uses.
I put a timer on this quiz, just to try out that function of the quiz-writing software. Three minutes is probably much more than anyone would need to complete the five sentences, but if you find the time is not sufficient, please send me a message or leave a comment.
