    4 is Principal because it is as a sum of money

    and 6 is large "stationery" tools

    How can the tools be static ?

    Sorry, I was wrong about 4. However, 6 is stationary because the tools don't move.

    The first one was wrong.
    and that is harsh because I know I should depend on my self but this should be a legitimate site and you should not confuse students like this.

    I changed 6 because I suspected you would be wrong again.

    I went wrong on my last test because you told me I was wrong, and I was really confused.

    This is very disappointing. You all are supposed to HELP us, not misguide us further.
