    Dear friends, take part in the test of Russian institute

    Dear friends, PLEASE, take part in the test for Russian institute!
    Read the following texts and answer the questions (in written form):

    1. A coach addressed his assistant. He said, “John, Mike’s brother as far as I know played football very well”.

    Answer the questions:
    а) Who played football very well?
    b) What is the assistant’s name?
    c) If something prevented you when you’re reading this text? If you have noticed something wrong in this text?

    2. The sailor said, “We have been at sea for a long time, I think for ten hours”.

    Choose the right variant:
    a) The sailor thought that they had been at see for a long time. (“We have been at sea for a long time, I think, / for ten hours”)
    b) The sailor thought that they had been at see for ten hours. (“We have been at sea for a long time /, I think, for ten hours”)
    c) If something prevented you when you’re reading this text? If you have noticed something wrong in this text?

    3. John asked Peter, “Who is going to come to your birthday?” Peter answered, “Well, there will be Alex, Mike my brother, and my sister Ann”.

    Answer the questions:
    a) How many people are going to come to Peters`s birthday (except John)?
    b) What is Peter’s brother name?
    c) If something prevented you when you’re reading this text? If you have noticed something wrong in this text?

    I think that you are supposed to email it to him.

    I'm pretty sure there were some other posts like this. Russian Institute sounds familiar.

    <The sailor said, “We have been at sea for a long time, I think for ten hours”. >

    10 hours??? That's barely a day's work
    I'm easily amused late at night...

    The aim of the test was not to explicit who knows the rules of the language but to get more answers for these texts! If you have noticed, these texts have two meanings...
    What is your answer?
