Hi Keiron, thanks for your comment. We have just checked both the PDF and Microsoft Word document and from our end, they seem to be correct. The first page is the actual worksheet where students need to cut up and paste the correct punctuation name with its definition so they are have been mixed around on purpose. The answer sheet is correct. Please let us know if you have any further questions.
