I answered the quiz in accordance with the tutorial, but my answer was incorrect.

"The wording of the tutorial: Youpi! J'ai eu ma licence! Yippee! I got my B.A.! My answer to the question in the quiz: "Annie a eu sa licence." means: Annie's got her licence. (my answer) Annie sat her B.A. (exam) Annie received her B.A. Annie has her B.A. The correct answer is: Annie received her B.A. Please explain my error.

Hi James - sorry you're right, that's not a very well-worded set of answers as 'got' in English is ambiguous. I think the point there was to distinguish between merely 'having' something and earning/winning/passing a test. We'll take a look and improve the question. Thanks for point it out.
Isn't the point that "licence" would be "permis" in French?

Hi Alan - that did occur to me, but since the focus of the lesson is the role of avoir (not vocabulary) I'm still not sure that was a great question the way it was structured - but we'll look at it and decide what to do.

Thanks . Any chance of getting my - 9,7% reversed?

Sorry James, that's technically very hard to do - but it'll soon go (also if you add the lesson to your notebook you can kwiz it quickly)
