    The incorrect sentence is 2. A score of years == 20 years. That is a long time to be in grammar school!

    Yep, 20 years in the US =
    a. high school diploma, bachelor's degree, master's degree, and at least part of a doctorate...
    or
    b. what you get for selling crack.
    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.

    1. monumental.
    2. Grammatically correct, if factually wrong.

    The word "monumenal" is just a missspelling.
