#2 is correct.
#s 3 and 4 are not.
I don't know about #1; what does your text say?
What do you mean what does my text say?
Would Number 3 be C?
and Would number 4 be A?
For #3, do you know the difference between abbreviations and contractions?
For #4, do you understand what "spatial order" is?
So it would be C and D?
Please reread the linked info I posted above. Then rethink everything in 3 and 4.
Yikes! Gabby what grade are you in. Most second graders would get number 3 right the first time. You've been working (?) on this for two or three days!
And normal 7th graders wouldn't take so much time to figure out the logical answer for 4 -- especially with the links that Writeacher and I have posted.
