Nicely Done!
You've surprised us! We thought this was a really tough test, but you've come through to show us you didn't just guess, but either understood most of the words or were logical enough to break them apart and understand where their meaning was going. That said, there IS room for improvement. Maybe try again OR check your mistakes by clicking on 'show mistakes'.
