    Don't worry, the authors of the test failed a few times as well by leaving out a word or two.

    "The only safe rule is to dispute only with those of your acquaintance of whom you know that they possess sufficient intelligence and self-respect not to advance absurdities; to appeal to reason and not to authority, and to listen to reason and yield to it; and, finally, to be willing to accept reason even from an opponent, and to be just enough to bear being proved to be in the wrong."

    ~ Arthur Schopenhauer, The Art of Being Right: 38 Ways to Win an Argument (1831), Stratagem XXXVIII.

    I'd tell them "your test has grammatical errors. If the test you are administering makes you look illiterate, how can it be used by you to test my literacy?"
    If that didn't work, I'd tell them to go F**k themselves.
