Well, it seems like there is someone who was not concentred, and she pay for it ! Sleepy <<< That was absolutely ME !!
I made 4 mistakes:
#1: I choosed dangers instead of dangerous = splling confusing !
#3: I missed that the missing word is an adverb so I choosed beautiful.
#7: I thought that crime means the action, not the person who make the action.
#9: Now here I need an explantion, why is it free not freely, isn't the part of speach of the missing word is an adverb? and what is the part of speach of the word free??

Sorry for talking too much, as you know , it's one of the most important things that we girls love to do !
