  1. I don't know the answer to 14.

    I disagree with your answers for 11 and 13. I don't think you can assure a child that you will help. It may raise false hopes in the child. I think that B is the best answer for 11. For 14, document what evidence you have.

  2. In addition to what Ms. Sue has written, you need to base your answers on laws and guidelines in Canada. I could hazard some guesses, but they'd be based on California laws, which may or may not be like Canada's.

  3. For #14, try some of the following:

    11. is definitely incorrect. As a teacher's aide you would not have the authority of an administrator.

    13. I'd go with B.
