    1. The correct answer is A, “Doug and me.”

    The correct way to write this sentence is, “Doug and I went to the concert, but we forgot our tickets and did not get to see the show.”

    We need to use “Doug and I.” A helpful hint is to say the sentence with just “me” or “I” and see if it makes sense. It does not sound right to say, “Me went to the concert.” Therefore, “me” is incorect. However, it does sound right to say, “I went to the concert,” which is why the sentence should start with “Doug and I.”

    2. The correct answer is C, “is.”

    In this case, we need to make sure our plurals are correct. We are talking about the details, so “is” should be “are.” If we remove “in the house” from the sentence it makes it easier to see. The sentence should read, “The many architectural details in the house are what makes it so special.”

    3. The correct answer is D, “not tree-lined.”

    We should not hypen tree lined. We would use a hyphen if it came before a noun it modified (tree-lined street), but since it does not, we shouldn’t use the hyphen.
