Dear all,

Nobody answered my quiz. This means that nobody read any thing here.
It seems to be that all of you are lazy. Smile Smile

Oh dear, I have read your topics. Not answering the quiz was because you have chosen easy words. You are a hard worker and you provide us with a very useful information. Thank you very much for your efforts.

Best wishes

Dear Passion,

Thank you for your reply, I think this is so simple because you are provided with a picture next to each question. But i think for the coming levels of homophones, questions will be harder because you will be asked to choose more confusing words.
So practice these pairs because homophones are confusing me also.
regards
