    Okay then #2 is D?
    I'm not sure about #3?

  • English - ,

    Yes, 2 is D.

    In 3, this won't work. Do you know why?
    "it was Josh and me"

    And this isn't even a real word! "theirselves"

    So what do you think about 3?

  • English - ,

    Okay then #3 has to be A because in letter C, "I reminded me" doesn't make sense, it should be "I reminded myself"

  • English - ,

    That's right. 3 is A.
