_________________________

Hello,

There is a mistake that comes after "considered to" in the second sentence of this test Question 8. According to http://www.oxfordadvancedlearnersdictionary.com/dictionary/consider, the correct structure is either "considered to be nuisance plants" or "considered as nuisance plants". Could you please verify this matter?

Thank you.

Best wishes,
Bhikkhu1991a.

This test has already been corrected on the database.
I'm sorry if this has not been reflected on the web-pages.
It seems that the corrections made by some of us are not being picked up.

Same question, BN.

Ah, got your answer. As you say, the corrections we've been making don't seem to be taking effect.
