  1. You should have done better picking answers at random. All of your 13 choices are wrong. Did you get the other 12 right?

    You need to spend some time reviewing the subject, otherwise you do not deserve to pass the assignment. Try answering them again and explain the reasons behind your answers, and I will be glad to critique your reasoning.
