Re: How good is your vocabulary?

I wonder if there's a time factor too?

Re: How good is your vocabulary?

I was doing well, over 50,000 points and the final question "roorback".  It's apparently an Americanism which cost me 5,000 points, are these words seriously used in tests for college students in the US?

Had a peek at the elementary grade, and thought that the selection was pretty tough for that age group.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: How good is your vocabulary?

As an experiment played the top rated option and deliberately answered them all incorrectly (yes honestly) and still ended with a score of 11200.
What can this mean?
What does it say for the validity of the test I wonder?
