[Dickens or Bulwer?] look my 8%
« on: March 16, 2006, 12:03:38 PM »
I had an 8% as a result in the quizz!!!!!!!! It´s not amazing considering that English is not my mother tongue (in fact I´m a very bad English speaker)  and that I hate literature. As a contrats, my results in musical quizzes were very good.


This post is about the Great prose or not? quiz --admin

Dickens or Bulwer

I am sorry but these prose quizzes are often absurd. The sections of text are too small to properly judge their quality. Her is a sample quiz to prove my point.

Which of these was said by GW Bush and which by Hitler?

1.Get me some coffee.
2.Get me my slippers.

Which of these was said by Charles Dicken's and which by a retarded ten year old?

1.I'm hungry.
2. I want to eat.

Of course, the puzzles are this bad, but they are extremely truncated.

my english is bad - school-english from more than 25 years ago

but i tried the quiz ... and i was right until the 8. question ... 67% ... think i was not so concentrated on the last ones - went through very quick and failed

did not understand half of the phrases but for me it´s a question of feeling a fluently sentense or not

so whats the problem - no question of the language - a logical question - nothing else ;-)
