Optional test questions (you don't have to take the driving test if you don't)

1/ you don’t have to take the driving test if you don’t …
a. want
b. like
c. want to
d. wish

2/ do we say “I parked my bicycle in the parking lot” or “I put my bicycle in the parking lot”. In other words, can the verb “park” be used for bicycles? if not, which verb should we use?

1-- What’s your answer?
2-- Yes, you can park your bicycle.

I choose “want to” but can’t explain why.

By the way, is my above sentence grammatically correct?
And by the way, should I say “is my above sentence grammatically correct?” or “is my above sentence grammatically right?” , and what’s the difference between the two usages?

Thanks a lot

Hi Nessie

For you first sentence, I’d say the author of the test probably expects you to choose C (‘want to’). However, people also use A (‘want’) sometimes.

Personally, I’d prefer this wording for your question:

Is my sentence above grammatically correct?

I’d say that ‘grammatically correct’ is a much more commonly used collocation than ‘grammatically right’.

Thanks a lot, Amy.
Here are some other queries:

  • why should we use “my sentence above” and not “my above sentence”?
  • if not taking account of “grammatically correct” and “grammatically right”, what is the difference between “right” and “correct”? when should we use “right” and when should we use “correct”?

any other idea, please? :slight_smile:

Hic, why am I always ignored like this? :frowning:
