9/10 for me. There was one I had no clue. Maybe a Brit - Amurican difference?

Only 5, twatty english pedants.

Btw, I was sat in the chair - doesn't that mean that someone made me sit in the chair?

as long as there are no wires to the chair, you should be fine!

The entertainment system needs wires!

ps: Or was that "seated" only?

I forgot what a gerund is.

In other news, this site is loading too damn slow. I'd post about that in the other thread, but I need to go to bed in about 12 hours.

10/10

But only because I remembered with a gerund was from reading a grammar article on the beeb site the other day.

The last one was an educated guess. I so wanted it to be a dangling participle...:D

I only went to a shitty inner city East London comp...:smoke:

I missed might/may. I don't ever remember it coming up in classes. I picked may because it sounded more stilted...figured that had to be the answer! :D

I'm disappointed the quiz didn't have past pluperfect tense. It's my favorite!
