Last question did not need to have the word "differences". Use of "difference" between species is better.

Q4 - "Giant monsters" - what sort of "monster" is not "giant"? Tautology.

The fur did belong to the cat so actually it's fur is correct as it is a possession of the cat.

Q 11 is wrong. The question mark goes inside the quotes.

there are grammatical errors in the questions asked you need to correct this test or take it off the system.

There is an extra space in one of the earlier ones - not fair. As that was an error.

Not all monsters are giants -- like sometimes you say a particular baby is a monster if s/he acts out weirdly. Sometimes there are monsters that are small -- like how some people hate spiders or tarantulas. Just my take on it.

I did ok I guess but thought most of the questions or statements could have been better written. Sort of like this comment

It's is a contraction, not a possessive

Numbers 4 (four) and 12 (twelve) contain SPELLING errors, not grammatical errors.

Question 10 has a comma before "but". "But" is a conjunction joining two parts of the sentence and does not require a comma before it.
