Dr. John’s Grammar Quiz #3


First, the answer to Grammar Quiz #2: “The scandal decimated the president’s family.” Garrison got it almost right. He found the problem word, decimate.  It means to reduce by a tenth. It stems from Roman times when every tenth man was killed to punish rebellious military units. Not that many people in the president’s family.

Dr. John’s Grammar Quiz #3  OK, all you careful writers, see if you can spot the glaring error here:

: “There was close coverage, each of the cameras showing whomever was speaking.”
