It’s time for another editing and proofreading quiz!
This is the second in a series of workouts that will apply your editing knowledge and proofreading skills to Chicago style.
Your goal is to find anything that would be considered an error according to The Chicago Manual of Style. Some of the examples are wrong by just about any standard. Others are contrary to Chicago style but may be correct according to other styles (see the disclaimer below).
Hint: Each numbered example includes no more than one error, and only one of these errors (we hope) is an error of fact.
Take the quiz and let us know how you did. Good luck!
Subscribers to The Chicago Manual of Style Online may click through to the linked sections of the Manual (cited in the answers). (For a 30-day free trial of CMOS Online, click here.)
Note: Style guides and dictionaries sometimes disagree. This quiz is designed to test your knowledge of The Chicago Manual of Style, 17th edition.
