Sometimes in farmyards when the cows return
well-fed from pasture to the barn, one sees

  16. Lola, guys all of your answers could be correct. It depends what test questions you got. When you go to high school, the school I go to is OCA, each test has mixed questions in it so people don't try to do this stuff. You all might have different questions and therefore different answers. Just wanted to get that out there. Hope you all passed.
