I AM TERRIBLE AT EDITING! HELP!
Wait a minute, is there an error in this sentence? Oh yes, “terrible” seems a bit odd. Do you know what the word should be replaced with for this sentence to be accurate?
JUST USE WHAT FITS IN!
How about “horrible” or “terrific”? These words seem to fit well with the sentence too. Unfortunately, if the above sentence appears in the editing component in your school paper, and “horrible” or “terrific” is your answer, you are not going to get a tick for it!
In case you are wondering, the correct answer should be “terrible”.
WAIT, ONLY ONE ANSWER IS ACCEPTED?
Yes, for spelling errors like the one above, only one answer will be accepted!
