Hello Charles,

What answers would you give?
(Number 6 doesn't seem to have any choices whilst neither of the choices for number 5 are good. The use of 'roadside' rather than 'road' seems strange in number 3. A roadside doesn't actually go anywhere.)

A 40-something-year-old habit for which I shan't apologise. :p
