Well...a lot (not alot) of people don't do too (not to) well with the trickier aspects of the English language. It's one of the strangest and most insane languages on the planet according to a lot of people, so there's no shame in not knowing some of the small differences in words. You should absolutely know the easy ones like the "there/their/they're" difference though!

You definitely could have (not could of) done better, but this is nothing to be ashamed of! Some of these were super tricky, and thousands of people make similar mistakes in their writing every single day. You're not alone, and frankly you're well on your way to being in a much higher class.

Awesome job! A lot (not alot) of these were really tricky, but to you they probably seemed like child's play. You've truly mastered some of the parts of the English language that trip people up the most. You should be proud of yourself (not you'reself) for that!
