I'm casually creating this English quiz just to test people - a few questions randomly when I can get time to pose them.

I'll keep asking questions, and you can use the same post to keep answering (with the use of the edit function) and then, once I've finished the quiz, I'll post the results.

1) B
2) C
3) D

I'm not sure about any of these. I don't really know many of the phrases you used, so I guessed at their meaning.

Multiple choice is easy. You pick a letter you like and you stick with it until you get results. :)

Statistically speaking, 'B' is most often the answer on a multiple choice quiz. If you stick with one letter, let it be 'B'. Good job Hanadorobou!
