Question 1
Chapter 1

Mr. Sherlock Holmes

Mr. Sherlock Holmes, who
was
(1 point) (be) usually very late in the mornings, save upon those not infrequent occasions when he was up all night, was seated at the breakfast table. I
stood
(1 point) (stand) upon the hearth-rug and
picked up
(1 point) (pick up) the stick which our visitor
had left
(1 point) (leave) behind him the night before. It was a fine, thick piece of wood, bulbous-headed, of the sort which is known as a "Penang lawyer." Just under the head
was
(1 point) (be) a broad silver band nearly an inch across. "To James Mortimer, M.R.C.S., from his friends of the C.C.H.," was
engraved
(1 point) (engrave) upon it, with the date "1884." It was just such a stick as the old-fashioned family practitioner used to carry--dignified, solid, and reassuring.

"Well, Watson, what
do you make
(1 point) (you make) of it?"

Holmes
was sitting
(1 point) (sit) with his back to me, and I
had given
(1 point) (give) him no sign of my occupation.

"How
did you know
(1 point) (you know) what I
was doing
(1 point) (do)? I
believe
(1 point) (believe) you have eyes in the back of your head."
