Verbal Genius Anyway

Took the "Mensa" test, the validity of which I question. I've seen at least 8 - 10 of these before just from little quizzes my mother the English teacher had access to and foisted upon me in my youth.

The test refers to itself too much. It'd be better if there were no overlap. I got 28.5 out of 33 - couldn't ever get the spelling right on one because it wasn't done in vernacular, but I had the terms right.

I'm no dummy, but I'm no genius, either. I'd say I'm just an excellent pattern matcher, which serves me really well in my job.

So, if you've visited the site and taken the test, did you notice the grammar error in one of the answers?

And where's the answer key?
