    80% 😀 I am satisfied. 😀 What are the right answers? 😀

  2. Hi there, Lenka.
    I don’t know why the quiz doesn’t show the correct answers. I’ll work on that for my next quiz. But for now, you can find the answers at http://www.blogcatalog.com/group/the-grammar-group/discuss/entry/grammar-quiz-discussion.

    By thw way, an 80 is great, and for a non-native English speaker, it’s fantastic. 🙂
