SAT January 2012 - Writing

<p>commitment to
elected president (i dont think you need "for')</p>


<p>Commitment to</p>

<p>Volcano was E i think
There were 1-2 more E's in that section
Amounts of substance was right</p>

<p>How many 'no errors' did everyone get? I think I got 4.</p>

<p>i thought it was "elected as".... but wasn't sure if it was "elected for"
and wouldn't commitment "to" only work if a verb follows the to? because i know it was "commitment and... blahblah" and then "in noun"</p>

<p>I would have gotten 4 "no errors" if I had put down E for the "amounts" question..</p>

<p>I hope this is my only mistake..</p>

<p>The commitment one is about parallelism/ idioms. Since the other word (which I forget) had the preposition "in" following it, commitment must also have a preposition to follow it. However, because of idioms, the preposition following commitment should be "to" and not share the "in" which is why the answer is commitment to. Does anyone else agree?</p>

<p>I had 3 no errors. I believe I marked "amounts of substance" incorrect.</p>

<p>what was the complete question for the SUBSTANCE one??</p>

<p>I had four no errors I believe including amounts of subject.
The walnut tree releases great amounts of substance (there is no "a" before great so amounts must be plural)
What did you get for the friendship one?
I said theirs was an odd friendship.
How about the Nobel one. I know that the way it was written was wrong for a fact.</p>

<p>hey guys. what was the EXACT topic of the essay.
was it to choose which one to suspect, motives OR honesty...
(i used Frankenstein and Joseph McCarthy during the mccarthy trials)</p>

<p>or was it is is wise to to suspect honest and motives in general?</p>

<p>what was the one about Every girl in my class...I put "wanted" because i thought it was supposed to be present tense but was it E?</p>

<p>i ****ed up for the odd friendship one... UGHHHHH. and what was the nobel qustion? loll</p>

For the friendship one, I got "Theirs..". That seemed like the only possible choice cuz none of the other choices formed a complete sentence.</p>

<p>Is it wise to have suspicion towards others' motives.</p>

I put "Theirs" too
I put E</p>

<p>I put no error for the girl's quincenera.
For the Nobel one I think I put "she then received a Nobel prize for her work" instead of "receiving a Nobel prize."</p>

<p>Was it
she then received a nobel prize for her work
she received a nobel prize for her work</p>


<p>I don't remember exactly. Maybe I am talking about a different question, but didn't "she received a nobel prize for her work" cause a comma splice?</p>

<p>I agree with drac. It said 'Each girl in my class.." so D was automatically out, and the other 3 were correct.
Btw anyone remember Question 14 for Section 10? I think I put C, but I can't remember. If someone can remember it please post it.</p>

<p>I can't remember for sure, but I think I put A for the nobel prize one. I think the rest of the choices were comma splices.</p>

<p>I marked "wanted" as an error. It's probably correct, and I just over thought it. I thought it should have been "wants."</p>

<p>@Lappith that's what I did but I think it's correct now that I think about it lol </p>

<p>What about the question about the speed of sound?</p>
