Are you ready for some good clean proofreading-related fun? I thought as much.
Here are three challenges for you to whet your wits upon. Put your answer in the comments, and I’ll release the correct answers in due course.
Disclaimer: one part of one of these challenges (and no, I’m not telling you which) is something of a trick question. One of the other challenges may not even have a correct answer, but may result in injury, maiming or death. You can’t say I didn’t warn you.
Challenge One: match the characters to the names.
A ÷ B ⁂ C # D « E ‽ F ¶ G / H ❧
Challenge Two: where would you hyphenate the following words?
minute (tick tick, not tiny)
Challenge Three: are you for or against the Oxford comma? «barricades self under desk and refuses to come out»
