  • Pratical English -

    No one here can tell what words are italicized. Please re-post and do TWO things:

    1. Put the italicized word in CAPITAL LETTERS.

    2. Put your answers with each question, not in a list at the bottom. Indicate which choice is your answer by putting an X by the letter or at the end of that choice.

    Repost when you're ready.

    Or, you could be a smart teacher and figure which word is suppose to be Italicized. AND, let him or her put their answers where they want to, damn. This is worse than actual school.
