  1. a)We b) Us optimists are sure that everything will work out for the best.

    The answer is incorrect. The correct answer should be a) We as it would need to be nominative case.

    No one is surprised that George is a better liar than a) he b) him.
    The answer on this one is also incorrect. Correctly stated, it would read, “No one is surprised that George is a better liar than he [is].”

  2. Thanks for taking the time to let us know about a problem with the quiz. It looks like we failed to put a correct answer on #3. That has been fixed. For #5, please be sure to review the use of pronouns in comparisons here: Determining the Case of pronouns in Comparisons
