    1 -- did you check at fedstats.gov?

    2, 3, and 4 are correct.

    5 would depend on what you're searching for, wouldn't it?

    I can't even read 6 and 7 -- too many all-caps/numbers -- hard on the eyes.

    For #1, I'm not saying you're wrong. I'm asking if you checked there to choose this answer. If it's what you found on fedstats.gov, then it's undoubtedly correct.

    Question # 1.

    The web page showing 1,398,414 building permits for 2007, but none of the choice showing that figure.

  • Literacy - , Monday, September 12, 2011 at 2:23pm

    Then you made a good choice. It's the answer closest to what you found. =)

    Thank you very much.
