  2. Mrs Sue, for #1, I think the answer is A because "it is" would not make sense. Therefore, you would not use it's.

  6. So, #4 is B, because when using if, it is past tense correct?
    # 12 is C right? (this was an error...meant to list C)
    #16 - B? If this is correct, can you please help me understand why underline vs italicized is interchangeable?
    Thanks

  7. 4 B is right. It's a conditional sentence, using "if.",
    12. I would choose A.
    16. Magazine article titles are enclosed in quotation marks.
