Errata: Mistakes in test #57.

I received this comment:

On Visual Latin quiz 57 problem number 43 the word Vinum is translated as vine in the answer key. We wondered if the correct translation would possibly be wine?

Here is my reply:

You found a mistake.  Thank you!  

43. Vinum     A) vine     B) vineyard     C) wine     D) water

The answer should be C) as you pointed out.  I have fixed it.  

Again, thank you!

Then, I received another email:

Comment: When I took Quiz 57, questions 10 and 11 said this:

10. I fear that they may not come. A) Timeo eos ne non veniant. B) Timeo eos ne veniant.

11. I fear that they may not come. A) Timeo eos ut veniant. B) Timeo eos ne veniant.

On page 194 in the Grammar section of our worksheet for lesson 57, it says that we should “use the subjunctive plus ne non or ut. Again, it is a little confusing, but, use the positive ut to show that you are negatively afraid.” (Quoting the worksheet)

I circled A on both, but the answer on the answer key for these Quizzes was B on both. If we are afraid they may NOT come, shouldn’t we use ut to show that we are negatively afraid?

Here is my reply:

Hello!

I must have been tired while writing this test.

You are correct.  You have spotted mistakes.  The answer to both should be letter A).

10.  I fear that they may not come.     A) Timeo eos ne non veniant.     B) Timeo eos ne veniant.     

11.  I fear that they may not come.     A) Timeo eos ut veniant.     B) Timeo eos ne veniant.     

I have corrected these mistakes.  Thank you for your help!
