Welcome back. On a lot of these Penn-Foster tests we have the answers. We don't for this one. We had a previous customer post it, and an Expert tried to help them and got a 65% on it. Ouch! Luckily, the customer told us which ones were wrong (Yeah!).

What I've done is put in () the answers that the customer told us were wrong, next to the wrong answer. So we can eliminate those out. I've put down what I think is the best answer of the remaining three.

1. b
2. c
3. c (b) wrong
4. d
5. d (a) wrong
6. d
7. a (c) wrong
8. b
9. a (c) wrong
10. b
11. c
12. a
13. a
14. c
15. b
16. d
17. b (c) wrong
18. d (c) wrong
19. d
20. a (c) wrong

Well, I know you will do much better than 65%! :-) Please let me know if these were of any help to you.

Regards,

Ryan
