Hi Freakout,

Welcome!

Unless I completely misunderstood the nature of this test. This appeared to have been a multiple choice test. However,

I am actually not sure what to make of it because I am baffled by the answer choices to the statements as they seemed so irrelevant that I began to wonder what the author's intent was when he wrote the test. Event more curious is that you actually gave your answers which were completely wrong . I have taken and marked a few to demonstrate what I meant. For instance:

The music downstairs was so too loud that I couldn't get any sleep last night! The correct construction should be ".... something is so [adjective] that ....." which is not in the answer keys.
(A) downstairs
(B) too
(C) get
(D) any

Does Are accounts receivable have to balance against assets and profits? Correct as marked. This is an accounting related question.

(A) Are
(B) receivable
(C) balance
(D) assets

The head of the Purchasing Department told me to send out this order as soon as I possibly could.
