Test answers 2

Here’s the whole test if you want to take it: this link. Questions 6–10:

  1.  It is now hoped that the system could be combined with the use of pheromones that lampreys use to attract mates.
  2. This weed includes the most vitamin A than all green leafy vegetables, which prevents cancer, and is abundant in Omega-3 fatty acids, so it effectively prevents heart diseases and stroke.
  3. It is more cost-effective by only utilizing more expensive authentication when warranted by the risk.
  4. It’s easier to implement than you may have thought.
  5. Sensitive personal data including cookies, API keys, and passwords has been leaked by web optimization giant Cloudflare.

…And here are the answers:

  1. “It is now hoped” is better than “Hopefully,” but you are better yet to use a real subject. The sentence should start with “We now hope…”
  2. Obviously the sentence should have “…the most vitamin A of all…” but it should also be two sentences:  “…fatty acids. It effectively…”
  3. “Utilizing” should be “using,” and “only” should be placed so the sentence reads “…by using only more…”
  4. Don’t use “may” when you mean “might.” “May” speaks of permission, “might” speaks of possibility. Besides, the sentence might be intended to mean, “It’s easier to implement than you might think.”
  5. This one is tricky. “Data” is a plural, so “has” should be “have.” I think it reads better if you make another plural, for example, “Sensitive types of personal data…” Then the obvious plural, “types” still takes “have,” and besides, that list is a list of types.

I hope you find reading about the test edifying, and I hope you go take the test. Tell me if you do, and I’ll add you to my list of testees.
