10/10 on Grammar, 4/8 on History. But I'm just a poor European, so result in History can just be a matter of probability (you know, 50% ;-) )

10/10 for grammar, but it was only about their, there, and they're and it and it's.

6/8 for History, but all the questions were on one foreign country (The United States of America) that luckily is close by.

7/8 for me. I also want to know which one I missed. I though West Virginia didn't join the confederacy and that was why the state was split. I wasn't sure about Texas. Also, who was the president who was impeached. I just guessed Johnson. LewBob

I figured it out by process of elimination. I didn't know what the Mayflower Pact was. LewBob
post #14 of 33
I had to do my research on this, as I am always suspect of these multiple choice tests. From what I have read, the purpose of the Mayflower Compact was not to proclaim allegience to the king. Though they proclaimed that they were soverigns of the king, the Compact seems to be stating that they will establish a system of just laws with which to govern themselves: In ye name of God, Amen. We whose names are underwriten, the loyall subjects of our dread soveraigne Lord King James by ye grace of God, of Great Britaine, Franc, & Ireland king, defender of ye faith, &c
Haveing undertaken, for ye glorie of God, and advancemente of ye Christian faith and honour of our king & countrie, a voyage to plant ye first colonie in ye Northerne parts of Virginia, doe by these presents solemnly & mutualy in ye presence of God, and one of another, covenant & combine our selves togeather into a civill body politick, for our better ordering & preservation & furtherance of ye ends aforesaid; and by vertue hearof to enacte, constitute, and frame such just & equall lawes, ordinances, Acts, constitutions, & offices, from time to time, as shall be thought most meete & convenient for ye generall good of ye Colonie, unto which we promise all due submission and obedience. In witnes wherof we have hereunder subscribed our names at Cap-Codd ye .11. of November, in ye year of ye raigne of our soveraigne Lord King James, of England, France, & Ireland ye eighteenth, and of Scotland ye fiftie fourth.

Middle school (and high school in my day) texts are so one dimensional.... LewBob

Ye forget that the fervice of the King if unto Him Giv'n and Bequeathed by the Almighty in the OIden thymes.

I did a report in 9th grade I still remember about John Winthrop and the Citty upon a Hill. All that olden stuff is taught in the schools around here. Kind of funny reading all the old spellings of things based on the original transcripts. All the s's look like f's ... crazy.

Now the onely way to avoyde this shipwracke and to provide for our posterity is to followe the Counsell of Micah, to doe Justly, to love mercy, to walke humbly with our God, for this end, wee must be knitt together in this worke as one man, wee must entertaine each other in brotherly Affeccion, wee must be willing to abridge our selves of our superfluities, for the supply of others necessities, wee must uphold a familiar Commerce together in all meekenes, gentlenes, patience and liberallity, wee must delight in eache other, make others Condicions our owne rejoyce together, mourne together, labour, and suffer together, allwayes haveing before our eyes our Commission and Community in the worke, our Community as members of the same body, soe shall wee keepe the unitie of the spirit in the bond of peace, the Lord will be our God and delight to dwell among us, as his owne people and will commaund a blessing upon us in all our wayes, soe that wee shall see much more of his wisdome power goodnes and truthe then formerly wee have beene acquainted with, wee shall finde that the God of Israell is among us, when tenn of us shall be able to resist a thousand of our enemies, when hee shall make us a prayse and glory, that men shall say of succeeding plantacions: the lord make it like that of New England: for wee must Consider that wee shall be as a Citty upon a Hill, the eies of all people are uppon us; soe that if wee shall deale falsely with our god in this worke wee have undertaken and soe cause him to withdrawe his present help from us, wee shall be made a story and a byword through the world, wee shall open the mouthes of enemies to speake evill of the wayes of god and all professours for Gods sake; wee shall shame the faces of many of gods worthy servants, and cause theire prayers to be turned into Cursses upon us till wee be consumed out of the good land whether wee are going: And to shutt upp this discourse with that exhortacion of Moses that faithfull servant of the Lord in his last farewell to Israell Deut. 30. Beloved there is now sett before us life, and good, deathe and evill in that wee are Commaunded this day to love the Lord our God, and to love one another to walke in his wayes and to keepe his Commaundements and his Ordinance, and his lawes, and the Articles of our Covenant with him that wee may live and be multiplyed, and that the Lord our God may blesse us in the land whether wee goe to possesse it: But if our heartes shall turne away soe that wee will not obey, but shall be seduced and worshipp other Gods our pleasures, and proffitts, and serve them, it is propounded unto us this day, wee shall surely perishe out of the good Land whether wee passe over this vast Sea to possesse it;
Therefore lett us choose life,
that wee, and our Seede,
may live; by obeyeing his
voyce, and cleaveing to him,
for hee is our life, and
our prosperity.

7/9 and 10/10. Less than 10/10 is appalling.

Most adults with whom I communicate have almost no knowledge of grammatical reasoning and application. The public schools have been ineffectual.

Their you go again oboe, being critical of are schools and there/it's students.

What's a Canadain???
post #21 of 33
8/8, 10/10. I'm an obnoxious know-it-all. Just ask my wife.

My wife and her friends at work occasionally play what they call "stump-the-geek". The come up with a bunch of questions and give them to my wife and on her lunch break, she either calls or emails me and sees if I can answer. I always get them all.

Easy example --

What is a hurricane?
What is a cyclone?
What is a typhoon?
What is a monsoon?

The point of the questions being both what's the real true definition of each term and how do they differ.

Wikipedia, google, etc. is cheating.

The way the border guards during WWII used to tell Canadians from US residents was to ask them to spell Arizona. It only works with oral spelling, not written.
