I’ve been using the last few days to prepare for the PSAT that I am going to take on Wednesday. It has actually been pretty fun most of the time. Did you know that it’s incorrect to say “I prefer apples over oranges?” It is also incorrect to say “I have to decide between pumkin pie, apple pie and brownies.” There are two problems with this sentence: “Who are you going to give that book to?” If you don’t know why any of these are wrong ask me next time you see me. If you can’t wait then look them up yourself.
Here is a question that was on my practice test:
There are 150 people in line outside a ballpark. If Peter is the 10th person from the front and Wendy is the 110th person from the front, how many people are there between Peter and Wendy?
Comment you answer!
