Good one, made me think and I got them all. Latin always throws me, until I get a chance to break it down.

I said mesa for plateau. I guess it depends on where you live. Out west it would be a mesa. Otherwise I didn't do very well. I flunked. Got the magic one, just the pronunciation wrong. The literary ones escaped me entirely.
