    Why did you repost those questions that I told you were right yesterday? The right answers haven't changed since then.

  2. Anonymous

    I didn't know if all of them were correct. Sorry

  3. Ms. Sue

    They are not all correct. Please go back and take notes or print the answers I posted last last night.

    I am not going to go through all 31 questions and answers again. However, if you post only those questions and answers I didn't correct last night, I'll try to check those. You're on your own for the true-false questions. But I will check the multiple choice answers.
