I would like to know (who's, whose) jacket this is.
1. Both are correct.
Numbers 4 and 6 are wrong. The rest are correct.
How are 4 and 6 wrong?
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.
I hope you did not disregard this message !!!
#1. is wrong, the correct answer is lend.
