Forgive me for being extremely pedantic, but Q24 does have two grammatically valid answers.

“My dad and I went” and “I and my dad went” are both acceptable from a purely grammatical standpoint; it’s merely “common usage” that prefers the former over the latter (to the extent that the latter almost never happens), but it is still an entirely permissible phraseology. 🤓

I would say my wording of "fits the best" covers common usage, but nice catch :)

While I do (hesitantly) agree, I do think a little caveat about common usage taking precedence if there are multiple valid options would be useful (especially if there are more examples in later quizzes in the series!). 🤔

I have updated to add a caveat for that now :)

I wasn't planning further additions, but I may do so now!
