You did that in front of your class, without checking the answers first? Whew! More guts than I have.
Here's where I probably show my ignorance, but maybe someone can explain this to me.
-----DON'T LOOK AT THIS PART IF YOU HAVEN'T TAKEN THE QUIZ-----
Q4 I had ____ myself down for a nap.
The answer is listed as lain, but..... I thought reflexive
pronouns were objects and so would take the transitive
"lay." I thought the answer would be "I had laid myself
down for a nap." Without the myself, I would say "I had lain down," but with it....
BTW, I also thought for #6 Chris' was correct, but is that a difference between US and British English??
