Grammar Guide word choice quiz – No. 63

I have a new 10-sentence multiple-choice quiz for you to try. I was reminded by something I read recently that these quizzes are actually about usage rather than grammar. In fact, most ordinary English speakers and writers need no guidance on grammar. It’s usage that we stumble on. Of course, English is what we make it, and what is common and preferred usage in one era is outdated in another. Copy editors follow current and common usage principles.

With that disclaimer, here is the quiz. I hope it proves fun and useful.
