While the correct proverb is: half a loaf is better than none, the only response that fit was “no bread at all” which means the same thing. Nowadays, people are saying “love me, love my cat” or whatever pet they have. Signs are made with these sayings. I had to think about it to remember what the original one was.

#16 should be half a loaf is better than none so I got it wrong because I've never heard of the other choices

The proverb containing the word “glitters” really should be “glisters” as its origin lies in one of Shakespeare’s plays. I think it’s The Merchant of Venice, however, through time, the word changed from the archaic form to a more modern “glitters”. The original reads as follows: “All that glisters is not gold, Often have you heard this told …”

Never heard #20. Did hear "Love me or leave me."

I always heard "A half a loaf is better than none." Looks like several others also thought so, too. My maternal family is all English/Scottish...no one ever said "no bread"....

19/20…. I lost the point on #16 because the way I have always heard it is …. half a loaf is better than none…. which wasn’t one of the choices.
