  • In N Z you doubtless have a few expressions which are not heard elsewhere, not even in Australia. I am southern English, but was in Oz for three years in the early 1970s. Visited N Z around Auckland for a few hours on the way home from Oz by sea. But then, what is "English" English or British English? As far as I am concerned the North (of England) is another country for language!

  • Ikiro for the most part was correct. However, for #6, aversion means to have a strong dislike for something, which doesn't fit into the sentence. The correct answer is "collusion."

    For #7, the only correct answer is "placidness...anxiety"

    #8 is "hardy...profuse"

    #12 was a trick question. There is nothing wrong with the extra "the", even though it may sound funny saying it aloud. The correct answer is "is", because of the incorrect subject-verb agreement.

    #14 is technically correct but it's missing a comma after week. Therefore, "week is" is your answer.

    (Wow, I get the feeling this unit was meant to be (crappy) SAT/PSAT prep, since the question types are similar lol.)

  • Seriously ever think that some of us K12 students have a hard time trying to teach ourselves all this **** on our own, having such dumb *** teachers that just sit on their asses getting paid for doing such a ѕнι𝓉ty job not teaching the students ANYTHING! The piece of **** school they run.

  • @The Person above me

    As a K12 student, I hope you realize that they probably don't have his/her yahoo email on file. So either way, he/she will not be caught. Lmao. Nice try though. 🙂

  • lol people are crazy as hell like really "ive already turned you in" ***** dont make me find you and besides i dont keyboard bang. DUECES

  • the increase in taxes are are sure to make what is the mistake?

  • Hey! So you are a little cheaty mc cheater pants 🙂 I have already reported you to the k12 admin. The thing is, your mostly cheating yourself. This is your education. And instead of taking the time to actually learn the material you choose to take all this time cheating. And dont be suprised if you get caught. Why? Because they now know your eamil and yahoo answer account. Every single question you have asked is from the k12 course. I hope you realize you can get exelled from this. Dont bother deleting the account. I took screne shots of these questions. Good luck to you in your future and maybe actually dont depend on others for answers. Good gosh you have been caught 🙂
