Hello Everyone,
I have found a mistake, look at below: "The wildebeest must cross the Mara River to reach their destination, congregating nervously on the shore before attempting the ardous task of crossing swift currents. Then as if receiving a flaggers's signal, they suddenly begin the exodus, with none staying behind on the shore."

It should be "arduous" instead of "ardous"

Unfortunately corrections are not being picked up at the moment:

I know, however, anyone who does the test want to know if the answer, word and sentence have correctly written. That's why we have made some comments about it and another user who will do the test, will understand. That's important for learners to understand it.

Kind regards
