14/20. :oops: The fact that I have been reading "Eats ,shoots and leaves" lately saved me in the grammar bit.

English is my 3rd language, IT is my prefession and I could attach the actual html screen print...

How smart are you?
You scored 20/20

Thanks for your entry.

Early next week in the Magazine there will be a maths quiz - and then we will sit down to work out the average score for everyone who has taken part.

(Thanks to our examiner, retired grammar school teacher Janice Owen.)

No...I got it the first time through...but I went back and started it again after your comment...and then realized that you could take it twice or more. Sneaky, you.

I do confess that the question on "questionnaire" was a bit of a lucky guess...sounded too "Europeanish" to me to be right...

I ought to have done well on it, I grew up speaking, reading and writing that language. I certainly wouldn't want to try it in another language... I'd be -2/20 then....

Phew, 20/20. A couple of lucky guesses there. I'm always getting my metaphors and similes cinfused.

19/20, non-native English speaker here, coming from French (which is a certain advantage for this one). Anyway, I reckon the test should be called 'how good is your Latin/Greek?' especially when you look at the first few questions :lol:
