hey babyb if everyone else got a 100 from RubyQ's answers then why r urs different?
i think babyb took the wrong test lol, i just checked rubyQs and they were all right stg!!
rubyQs is a liar I took the test and did 100% and those were not the answer
RubyQ I am playing your Right i double check my text my mistake good job.
lol you guys, none of the penn foster exams are exactly alike. all of them are different. when ms. ruby put the answer with the questions she put them there for the question on THIS exam(the one posted here). so obviously the questions and answers wont be in the same spots as in "A" "B" "C" or "D" youll have to look for the answers and put them down. some questions on this exam might not be on the one you're taking, vice versa.
what ever you do don't look at baby b answers! it's all wrong! just to let you know!
The Real Answers,
RubyQ, MK, Heather, Cutie, Naadiya, and Norbert, are all the same person. I could care less about weather or not the answers are correct, but what do you think about someone who replies to themselves with positive feedback saying that they are 100% correct? That is something of a red light in my eyes, nobody should do that unless they are trying to trick someone.
