Correct the errors in the following sentence:

I asked Helen how did she do on the exam. She replied I'm sure I did good I think I aced it.

Remember that there is more than one possible correct answer.

Note: you can still see previous Grammar Questions of the Week; they are posted in the archive in the side bar.

I've asked Helen how does she did at the exam. She replied: "I'm sure I've done good, and I think I've aced."

Lorraine: You need to think about a few things here: 1--question word order and form; 2--word confusion; 3--a missing pronoun.

New try:

I've asked Helen how did she do at the exam. She replied: "I'm sure I've done good, and I think I've aced it."

Lorraine: There's some improvement here, but there is still a problem with the question--it is an embedded question--and a problem with word confusion;-)
