ESL/EFL Test #884 "City on the Seas", answer 6

As the passengers enters the ship's portal, somber security guards ask for identification; all packages, purse and carry-on items must be screened through an x-ray machine. No food or alcohol can be brought onboard.

Correct answer: (b) somber
_________________________

passengers enters??
Shouldn't this be passengers enter or passenger enters? Also, should "purse" be plural, or does that matter?

You're correct, Joe. There are a number of typos running through that particular test. Thanks.

Unfortunately, it seems I am getting the same error message as Mister Micawber since the server migration...
I also get the error message:
The test couldn't be created. (problem with update in DB or edit files)

HOWEVER, when I go back into the test, my changes appear in the editing tool.
