12 and 13 could be both options. 14 neither is correct.

Don Agey, It used to be, but the it has recently changed due to political correctness. “Everybody” is singular, “their” is plural

Rosemary Elstone, Johnsons in this respect is plural, not possessive

14/15... I definitely disagree with the answer given for #12. Continuous means constantly as in a stream of water. Continual means breaks between drops falling i.e. dripping

The difference between continuous and continual is that the latter implies intermittent ongoing drip page rather and constant. I would call a constant drip a leak and the irregular drip of a continual leak would bother me a lot more

14/15. The question about The Johnston's is incorrect. It should be Johnston's not Johnston's as in owning the house the word is a possessive, 'house' or 'home' is understood.

15 out of 15. Possession does not always necessitate an apostrophe.
