Get it right!

This is a very easy test, which a number of authors and book editors would fail.

Staples Grammar Test

100% here, too. I must be insecure, though, because when I see a blinding error in print, I always wonder if I've got it wrong. They are the professionals, aren't they, so they should have it right?
