SATs grammar test prep. I’ve noticed that I have forgotten an adverb on one question though! Sorry! There are some errors in it but if you read through it you can make your changes.

Loads of errors, no thanks!

This was useful for me, as I saved time over having to write it all myself. However, both papers contained worrying errors, which demonstrate a lack of teacher subject knowledge. After corrections, the papers worked well.

The sentences are not at all natural: for example, we would never say 'She is the winner of the marathon.' We'd say 'She won the marathon!' (Grammar Q 3b). Sometimes they are mistaken: Q 2C: 'brought' is used with its US meaing here. Britihs English would have: 'He took his son to the Paralympic Games on Sunday.' (Unless tue speaker/writer was working in the Olympic Park at the time...) Punctuation Q1a: how is the student supposed to know how many lions are in the cage? Is it 'lion's cage' or 'lions' cage'? (Please don't say both would be correct; even a student who knows both answers would be correct would worry about which is expected.) Punctuation Q5: in British Eglish, none of those are correct: 'Mary has just moved to Park Street.'
