  1. I selected “did come” in the third question. It’s the same as “came”, right? Got wrong though.

    Anyway, I think it’s more of an English grammar test. I could get 4-5 right just because of the sentence structure the English grammar has. 13/15.

      • Yeah, these are just simple fill-ins. But what amused me is that I had also a quiz on English grammar posted here. And it didn’t point to any particular topic – NZ in your case. I mean to say, the title could have been regarding the grammar too. Just my views. But that doesn’t take away the interest in the quiz. Nicely written!!!
