Well done to him, I assume that he has learnt it all at school, and retained it.

thanks John.

edit to add I did pass the old Scholarship, the forerunner to the 11+

I couldn't find the link to the test for Yorkshire men so asked my 12 year old grandson to do it, He scored 14/14 :-D

Told his mother; I want a DNA test :-0

How many would you need to score in that test at 11 years old to pass?

I am only 10 years old myself ;-)

It's certainly nothing I was taught at school, but I did used to read through my mum's old grammar books and this was similar to the content.

Well it is a long time since I studied grammar at school Got a grade A at 'A' level for grammar combined with literature in the 70s when I was in my 30s but didn't ever hear of a gerund. Yes I have looked it up and know now. :-D

It is a long time since I took my O level English & I cannot remember ever learning what an English gerund was, so got 14 wrong & 12

12 right. Got 13 and 14 wrong. Guessed 13 and didn't have a clue what gerund was. Never heard of it and never was good at prepositions.

I guessed at a few. And I knew Sheila and Gwynne would do well (Proffesionals, see). Wouldn't be surprised if average is less than 5 - as we are all quite good (I think).

So upset that SueCrutch has beaten me. :-( :-( :-( :-(

Off for a sulk
