This is a question on grading the writing challenges (which are great-Thanks!)

I struggle with grading the Writing Challenges. An example I have just had: The correct answers were (1) "on a beaucoup de choix", and (2) "on a plein d'options". My answer was a mixture of the two: "on a beaucoup d'options". Question: when there are two correct answers, are the parts 'interchangable'? Are "a plein d' " interchangeable with "a beaucoup de", and "d'options" with "de choix"? Or is the correct answer exactly as it is written in the first or the second sentence? I hope this makes sense! Thank you in advance for your help! Terri

Bonjour Terri, Yes, generally speaking, unless there's a note that says something like "familiar" or "too formal" next to one answer, the pieces of the correct answers are interchangeable.
Thank you, Laura, for the clarity. I enjoy the writing challenges, but the grading was always a challenge - now I'll enjoy the writing even more.
