None of the choices in this question are correctly written: Read the thesaurus entry below: Impeccable: adjective. The lieutenant's record is impeccable.Flawless; unblemished, spotless, immaculate, pristine, perfect. Which sentence uses a form of the word impeccable correctly? (1 point) She was wearing a suit, dress impeccably for her job interview. Laurel's room was impeccably messy. You're late again today; you are impeccable about promptness. I cannot eat this soup; it doesn't taste good and it's prepared impeccably.

    Each choice has one or more errors. I'm helping my 9th grade niece and am not pleased with the quality of material she's dealing with in virtual school.

    A is incorrect because "She was wearing a suit, dress impeccably for her job interview." "dress impeccably" uses an adverb (impeccably) with a noun (dress). Had the sentence read "She was wearing a suit, dress impeccable for her job interview," that would be correct. Had it read "She was wearing a suit, dressed impeccably for...," it would have been correct. C is incorrect because the first and second parts of the sentence are contradictory and because none of the stated meanings of 'impeccable" is appropriate as a follow to the first clause. "You're late again today; you are impeccable about promptness." D is incorrect because of similar reasons to C. The clause "it doesn't taste good" is contradictory to "it's prepared impeccably" given the stated definitions of the term: Flawless; unblemished, spotless, immaculate, pristine, perfect. I cannot eat this soup; it doesn't taste good and it's prepared impeccably.
