I received the following email regarding Visual Latin, quiz 33:

I have 2 questions.

On question 4 of Test 33 I feel like the question wasn’t specified enough. Latin numbers spelled use latin endings but the actual numbers are just letters. I got the question wrong because of the fact I didn’t feel it was specified enough. “All latin numbers use the latin endings.” Isn’t this true?

Secondly, question 36 says’ Species: A) kind B) type C) species D) all of the above. Isn’t this all of the above?

Here is my reply:

Hi, Matthew!

As for your second question, you are correct.  It should be D) all of the above.  However, since it can be any answer, you really did not get it wrong.

I have corrected this mistake on the tests and quizzes, by the way.

As for the first question, I see how it can be confusing.  The question is referring to the numbers in vocabulary form, as in five, six, and seven, as opposed to 5, 6, and 7.  In Latin, some numbers in vocabulary form use the Latin endings, and some do not.

I hope this helps.  Let me know if you need more help!

Have a happy Saturday!
