  1. If you mean "shortened words" -- the same thing as contractions -- then you'll need to say "shortened words." I don't know what "short words" are! (As opposed to tall words!)

  2. From GuruBlue:

    Instead of the second "after that", I would substitute "then". What does the "them" refer to? It is not clear in that sentence.

    #3. Use the term "contractions".
    After you read the following passage, answer the question using contractions.

    Notice, I put a period at the end of the sentence instead of a question mark.
