Hi,
I need to know if the answers that I picked are the right ones. I am new at Tutoring and i still get things wrong from time to time. I think lately it has been more wrong than right for me ha ha.

I did ____ on the grammar test.

a. real good
b. really well
c. real well
d. really good

I chose letter C

The ___ gave their names and addresses to that ______secretary.

a. witnesses;attorneys'
b. witnesses';attorneys
c. witnesses; attorney's
d. witness's; attorney's

I chose the letter D.

Any help on this would be appreciated. Tk

Hi tknjhall,

I did really well on the grammar test.

B is correct


GuruNet.com

USAGE NOTE Good is properly used as an adjective with linking verbs such as be, seem, or appear: The future looks good. The soup tastes good. It should not be used as an adverb with other verbs: The car runs well (not good). Thus, The dress fits well and looks good.

The witnesses gave their names and addresses to that attorney's secretary.

The first is plural, no possessive. (gave THEIR names) The second is singular and possessive. (to THAT attorney's SECRETARY)

You need to hunt for the clues.

C is correct.

Hope that helps.
