asked by John
  1. 1. left-handed

    #s 1 - 6 are all correct and commonly used. But in 7, the word "ambidexter" is obsolete and no longer used.

    8. The word "guy" here is male.

    9. However, in this sentence, "guys" may refer to both males and females. I don't like to be referred to as one of the "guys," though.

    Guys is used as an appositive modifying You. Either preposition is correct.
