  1. The correct answer was:
    My great-aunt, Bobby, wasn't the kind of lady to take "no" for an answer.
    As always, a name inserted after a title gets commas around it. No is an answer that would be spoken, hence the quotes.


    Assuming that you only have ONE great-aunt. :P I answered without commas around Bobby's name, assuming that the speaker had at least two.

    Other than that, we agreed on all points. Fun little quiz!

  2. I have to disagree with your answer on a word meaning 'to benefit'. Behoove refers to duty or responsibility or obligation (in other words, what is 'befitting'). So after deep thought I answered 'handicap' because in golf, horse racing, etc., the handicapper confers some benefit on weaker competitors. No problem with the others, though.

    1. Actually, if you seek it out on Dictionary.com, as a verb, benefit shows up as one of the synonyms of behoove. For example: Would it behoove me to take my wife flowers today? Which means: be in my best interest or provide me any type of benefit. :)
