    For the spelling challenged

    A little spelling and grammar quiz. Pretty easy.

    I got 13 out of 15. I missed an easy one and then I thought that "lead" was also used for past tense.

    Went 15 for 15, but found (warning spoilers)...

    ...a couple of mistakes.

    Fun test. Yes, easy, but also easy to miss up, uh I mean MESS up on... ;)

    BTW, I have issues with a couple of answers:

    Sentence #7, the correct answer is the fourth choice, If you're going then I want to go too. Technically speaking, there should be commas after "going" and "go"...

    Sentence #15, the answer is Its legs were too short to reach the trees, but depending on the context, the third sentence, Its legs were too short to reach the tree's can also be correct...

    For example, The huge flesh-eating rodent could only stay warm by continually snorting wet leaves, either those on the tree or those on the ground. It choose the ground's leaves because (WAIT for it!) its legs were too short to reach the tree's...
