    Question 8: 's Question 17: Book's
    Correct words did not appear

  • Barbara Mitchell says:

    On the test for #1: according to Morson 215 it can be “your Honor” or “Your Honor”, in neither quiz were these two listed as 1 AND 2: they were listed 1 AND 3; 1 AND 3 was not an option.

    • kfowler says:

      This has not been fixed. Very confusing.

      • Linda Evenson says:

        I fixed the “Your/your Honor” question quite awhile ago. It is correct on the website.

        • krisalden says:

          I am taking the quiz right now, and the original problem has not been solved. The answer options I see are:

          * Either 1 or 2 is correct
          * your Honor, August
          * your honor, August
          * Your Honor, August

          • Linda Evenson says:

            RATS! I may have forgotten to save it after I fixed it. I just did it again and went in and looked at it, and it now appears to be correct. Please let me know if not. Thanks!

  • Selma Perry says:

    Quiz grading results state 16 out of 20 correct. Actual results show 17 out of 20 correct. Please advise.

  • Liana Sears says:

    My results show 20 out of 20 correct, but the grading says that I got 19 out of 20 correct and passed????

  • bambakidis says:

    In reviewing this quiz question, I have a question- -shouldn’t Attorney be un-capped?

    Question #12: Did you talk to your (attorney, Attorney) or (detective, Detective) Washburne first?
    Correct
    Your Answer:

    Attorney, Detective

    Correct Answer:

    Attorney, Detective

    Other Possible Answers:

    attorney, detective
    Attorney, detective

    Explanation: Capitalize professional titles when they precede a name but not occupational titles. (Morson’s 208)

    • Linda Evenson says:

      I know that the software has changed the correct answers before that I have put in. You are definitely correct: attorney would not be capped. I’ll go in and look at it. Thanks.

  • bambakidis says:

    I also seem to have none marked wrong, yet a score of 90%.

  • ollieshilo says:

    This is more than a little aggravating. It says I failed the quiz because I got #1, #19, and #20 wrong. On #1, the option “1 and 2” is not even an option because it was the FIRST answer, followed by “your honor,” “Your Honor,” and “your Honor.” In #19, how is “Pharmacist Johnson” different than “Nurse Anderson” in your example?

    • Linda Evenson says:

      Hi, again –

      Now that I am finally able to get into the website, I’m trying to chase all these down.

      1. The answers are set to display randomly which is why “1 and 2” showed up as the first answer. I have taken that option off of this question.
      19. Since Morson’s says to cap a title when followed by the proper name, I agree with you. I think “pharmacist” should be capped in this instance.
      20. I don’t have my Morson’s with me, so I’ll look this up when I get home later today.

      Thanks for posting your questions!

      Linda

  • ollieshilo says:

    In taking this quiz a second time, I answered #1 “either 1 or 2 is correct,” because that seems to be the correct answer, despite the fact that the second selection is “either 1 or 2 is correct.” Also, in #3, it indicates I answered incorrectly when the answer I had chosen was the correct answer. There are errors in the quizzes on this website.

    • Linda Evenson says:

      I looked at your test, and the answer you chose has “Doctor” as capped when it should not be. Is it possible that you accidentally hit the wrong one?
