    You did better then me, I got 50% lmao

    70% on that one...

    80% I was feeling rather worried as I answered each question though.

    60% lmao

    65% alot better than i thought id do lol

    55% that is awful. I thought I would get nearly 100% on that. What an eye opener!!

    I got one wrong, I thought this was correct but apparently it isn't....and I am still not sure why/how lol

    "Can you tell me where the mens toilet is?"

    I'm guessing it should be Men's Toilet. Mens' toilet would suggest ownership of the toilet. Then again, would you believe someone who got 55%.

    i got 60% which is a lot more than i thought i would get

    Think I will leave this one until tomorrow when (hopefully!) I will be more alert

    70% but I thought I had got more wrong!

    No, it should be mens'. Apostrophe after the s is plural, there is more than one man, hence men and it is their toilet.

    No it shuold be men's. Men is the plural not mens. You only put an -s' at the end when the plural already has an s at the end. For example if a car belonged to both parents it would be the parents' car.

    I got 80% but I'm not certain that some of the questions are correct, or some are ambiguously phrased.

    What was I thinking!?

    You are quite correct, it is men's and I apologise to everyone that has ever listened to me!

    Oh well, it was late - atleast now my 1000th post is me apologising for being a fool.

    There is an arguement that the apostrophe should be dropped because of its continous misuse. However, I disagree, I love my apostrophe!

    ^ ^ ^ Lol

    Surely you mean "omg I've got an A in English andI got 35%", he said patronisingly. Sorry, you were asking for it.

    lmao fair point :thumbsup:

    As stated, several questions were ambiguous - I believe that some dealt with not *just* the apostrophe, but also with grammar. I managed to get 75%

    I thought I'd do worse than that.

    I agree with markwills though, I got one wrong that I'm sure is right.

    Your score is 85% I am pleased with that
