Good enough #2 (permalink) Wed Oct 31, 2007 16:54 pm   Good enough
 

The popular phrase is "good enough."
Remember to use "well" with verbs (as an adverb) and "good" with nouns (as an adjective.)
For example, "She skates well."
And "That was a really good soccer game."
In the test question, the speaker is referring to the amount of work completed (which is a noun) so "good enough" is the right choice.

Dear Linda,

I interpreted this test otherwise. I mutched up "good" with"enough". So I think this is a set expression and its synonyms:fair-enough,super, stunning, right etc.
Don't you think Iam right or not?

Kati
