You could..... but everyone is quite confident that 2 things are going to happen here......

1.  You only get 9/20 correct.
2.  You lie about how many you actually get.

As far as I am concerned I failed miserably as I only got 17 :grumpy My excuse was I rushed it as I was cooking at the time. The ones I got wrong I knew them! :gaah Fulfil was one of them. And I am sure that's because American English is in all the papers and online all the time these days (no offence Scotty :flowers ) but it isn't correct and drives our language pedant daughter mad :fit :lol
