  1. I got 7/10 mostly for leaving out some answers :)

    1. Same. Didn’t know Baleen, Reed, Flosing

  2. You should not use “comprise” as a synonym for “compose.” This is a very common but nonetheless very annoying error. The whole comprises the parts: it means “includes in toto.” E.g., “The flag comprises the colors red, white, and blue.” I.e., it includes no other colors. Also correct is “The flag is composed, or made up, of the colors red, white, and blue.” Also correct is “The colors red, white, and blue constitute [make up] the flag.”

  3. It was fun and informational! Sadly, I did not pass the quiz. Just shows that I have more to learn.
