I have been reviewing the incorrect answers, number 40, we have answered correctly, please check the following link number 36

 

That is the book's website:

http://highered.mcgraw-hill.com/sites/0073027200/student_view0/mid-term_exam.html

 

I still am sorry about losing the marks on those questions. I also wanted to check something with you. You said you were ready to offer an additional "Are you willing to do the remaining 18 questions? if so I'll add another $18 to the amount", have you added this amount? I am checking because I was notified of the initial payment of $15, but not the $18

 

Please advise

 

Thank you
