Capital is wrong. It's capitol. I was always taught that one shouldn't end a sentence with a preposition.

buhlemann, Ahhh. I chose 'walks' (as in we like to go for walks) as not being a verb

login is not a verb. Log in is.

Carrie Arnold-Marsh, It is a practice up with which you will not put?

I disagree with ending a sentence with a preposition is OK--that's NOT how I was taught!

emabroad, It is not wrong. Capital is the city. Capitol is the building. Anything you see or read to the contrary IS wrong or you have misread it.

16/21 Answered the first without actually reading it and realized too late-duh. Missed the spelling of capital. The others I missed make me think I should review my grammar and spelling a little more. :)

emabroad, that's the building not the city. I answered capitol too, but then realized the building is spelled with an o, but when spelled with an a, the word is defined as the city or town that is the official set of govt.

WASH DC is the CAPITAL of the US, whereas the CAPITOL building is where our Congress meets. Trust me,I live here.

No. 13 answer is wrong. It is not Capital - it's Capitol! Dictionary definition: (the Capitol) the seat of the US Congress in Washington DC. • (capitol) US a building housing a legislative assembly: the work is on display at the Utah state capitol.

skclary, that was true in my time and was surprised that I got that one wrong! I guess the rules have changed? There is no object of the preposition & I learned that this was unacceptable form!!
