_________________________

Hello,

In the third sentence of this test, "contact" is a transitive verb that needs an object according to Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary. Thus, something is missing immediately after "contact". Could you please double-check the omission?

Thank you.

Best wishes,
Bhikkhu1991a.
