Do you have a high IQ? Do you know the rules of grammar? Do you think you know all there is to know about using it properly? Are you what some would call a wordsmith? Do people believe you may be a genius? Are you a stickler for proper sentence structure? Do you think you can tackle some notorious tough grammar questions? If you said "yes" to any of these questions, then this is the quiz for you!

Some of us are still pretty old-fashioned — we view the English language as art and are voracious readers. But the internet, texting, and spellcheck have enabled us to get a little lazy with our grammar skills. While helpful and easy, these things have also stopped us from practicing grammar the old school way and we sometimes struggle to remember words that are notoriously difficult. If you still have a great vocabulary in today's technical age, pat yourself on the back — the skill is getting harder and harder to master!

We think reading is pretty cool and some of us even want to pass that knowledge down to future generations! If you're someone who just loves words and you're a pretty smart cookie, you'll have a ball deciding which of these sentences and grammar rules are correct in this fun but challenging quiz!

So, if you think you have what it takes, sit back, relax and flex your mental muscles to see just how well you do! Test yourself to find out if all that reading and English language studying paid off. Good luck!
