<p>IMPROVING SENTENCES (0/11)</p>

<p>ERROR IDENTIFICATION (13/18)
compared Jupiter's weather to Earth --- "Earth" should be "that of Earth"
Although ...., but ... --- Although is redundant so answer is A
sister and I put our hand in lake --- should be "hands"
three things were being compared and "more" was used --- should be "most"
Stonehenge question --- "has been" wrong tense
a woman who would have "went" to college --- should be "would have gone"
women became a person in their own right --- plurality mismatch on "a person"
... one ..., you --- pronoun inconsistency, "you" is the error
Number of something, ...., "are growing" --- should be "is growing"
intent about --- should be "intent on"
enjoyed opera more than all types of performance --- should be "all other types"
molars question -- pay attention to</p>

insert after the first sentence about scientists, i think #8
delete the sentence
"They also" purr when they are stressed

<p>What was the answer on the math section with the 2 equilateral triangles in the big triangle and you have to find the area of the quad, or something along those lines. I put that it was 7/9 but I'm not sure, you probably already have it up there.</p>

<p>@ r0kAng3l: </p>

<p>


</p>

<p>Yup, we already do. ;)</p>

<p>@NewAccount
The missing question is from the talent passage.</p>

<p>5x+3=4x+6 is 3
I feel really stupid, when I did this problem I accidently added 3 to the other side, not -3 wow that was definitely a stupid moment right there.....</p>

<p>also anyone remember the pencil question, something about pencils and lead pencils and the answer being " as early as"</p>

<p>@shaheiruddin wow thanks alot. this is great stuff. i was very nervous about CR but it looks like i did really well according to your answers. let me just know if your 100% sure about these answers or not. thanks a lot</p>

<p>I vaguely remember the question you're talking about, sha, but I don't remember that I put "as early as" as the answer. Though I can't remember what I did put...</p>

<p>^^ sry.. to fledgling</p>

<p>^ Haha, no problem. :) Though I really can't take all the credit; these were compiled answers copied and pasted from the respective threads of each section. I couldn't possibly have remembered all those answers on my own.</p>

<p>what do you think is the range for 800 CR?</p>

u guys r a bunch of noobs. I got a 2400 because my uncle works for the college board and he got me the answers lololol. soooo easy, i can't wait to go to vanderbilt

[/quote]

<p>umm okay here's an addition to the writing portion
Improving sentences</p>

<p>Maria would have went to college... should have been Maria would have gone to college (i think answer choice B?) correct me if i'm wrong.</p>

<p>range for an 800 CR anyone?</p>

<p>For improving sentences in the writing section, I remember two questions. </p>

<p>There was one about women pilots in WWII; I think I chose something like: "...women, a pilot, flew planes..." but the answer was probably "...women who were pilots flew planes..."; I didn't choose the latter because it distorted the meaning of the sentence, but looking back, the choice I did pick isn't even grammatically correct. So I don't know, I'll leave it up to you guys.</p>

<p>There was also one about workers and a strike, something along the lines of "Were they to offer something, the workers would not go on strike"; The answer was probably "If they would have offered something, the workers would not go on strike" or leave as is (unlikely since most people say there were only 2 no errors). I can't remember which answer I chose.</p>
