Grammar Guru. Some of those were pretty tricky, though.

If you only missed i.e. and e.g. you got 100%; I can't think of a single time I've ever thought about using either.
E.g. usually becomes "like" and I'd omit i.e. completely.

Some things are really annoying, e.g. getting modded on this forum, getting modded on this forum, and getting modded on this forum.

I'd like to give more information (i.e. feedback, discussion, and criticism) but Amazon can't be bothered to implement a moderation system with a sensible turnaround time so comments remain relevant.

Extra credit! :)

You have 9,000 posts so your superpower is obviously patience.

Meanwhile, I'm about to Hulk Smash this place every time my post gets the snail mail treatment.

But, hey, I know I can come where whenever I need to get in the mood to write angry characters. :)

It really was a test perhaps more appropriate for junior high school students.

They got me on the "could of", but 97% overall.

Some of those were giveaways, but I had to think about others, and this reminded that my casual Southern dialect still creeps into my writing-- the whole "lie" vs. "lay" thingie is an example.

I have to agree with Jonathon B. Most of those questions are primary school level English. It was fun, but if answering those makes someone a Guru, then there must be an awfully large number of Gurus around. Lol. In the UK we tend to use the word 'lie' in many instances that would be rendered 'lay' in US English.
