Hello Mr.Chris


How sure are you about your answers, because I am 100 percent positive that 1. is B. word order and 14. is B.thinks about the sound's features



Thanks for your response.

Numbers 1. & 14. each seemed to have two possible answers and I choose the one I believed to be best. After a bit more research, I would agree with you on #1. Also, I think #14. could very well be answered: B. thinks about the sound's features (although this answer seems to apply more to an infant or small child than "a person" in general).

Regardless, if you are 100% sure go with your answers on these two.

Hello again Mr. Chris,


I went along with my answer for #1 and #14 and they were correct. I recieved a 90% on my test. #5 was A. early literacy and #16 was C. language children speak to each other


I actually had #16 C. before changing it to A. I was only about 50% sure about C.


But, that's okay I am very happy that you help me pass the test. Thanks alot Mr. Chris for your help. I look forward to your assistants in the future.
