I am currently doing the Grammar Awareness Assessment. On my first attempt i did it all by myself and got every question correct except for the very last point on 'The school was founded in 2002'. I put 'A completed action at a specified time in the past' and was marked wrong. This is the tutors comments -
In (iv) the function is incorrect. Why is the passive voice used here instead of the active voice?
They founded the school in 2002 - active
The school was founded in 2002 - passive
Well done overall - you just need to redo this last answer.
So i went back through the modules, Present and Past Simple Tense Functions and The Active and Passive Voices, now going by the tutors comments i concluded that the only other possible answer could be a 'past state'. So that is the answer that i gave for my second attempt, but it was also marked incorrect, and to make things even worse, there was no feedback left!!! Nothing at all! Not even a word.
So now, this time i have been searching the internet for answers, and i am completely godsmacked! I have now discovered that other people have given the same answers as me, and they were marked correct!!! How is this possible?
I am really upset and have no idea what to do. I don't have another answer. I just feel like writing 'i have no idea' for my final attempt.
So anyway, i am not asking for an answer, i just hoping that someone will be able to shed some light on my situation. Any help will be so very much appreciated. A gentle push in the right direction would be so helpfull.
Many thanks for taking the time to read my post.
