There is a glitch in the exam, at the question that requires to choose among the age of the child. None of the choices to be selected has the sequence of hyphens that this lecture suggests. Besides the concept demonstrated in this lecture is in contradiction with other principles about not using hyphens in ages. I suggest the technical staff have this issue revised in the certification exam.
Co-operate: Trabajar juntos en un esfuerzo común. Russia and China co-operate in the field of Economics. Ex-husband: El esposo anterior o anteriormente casado. Laura's ex-husband is a very successful actor. Re-enter: Entrar de nuevo en un lugar o situación. The astronauts were in trouble when they re-entered the armosphere. Pre-eminent: Sobresaliente o superior en importancia o excelencia. Learning Theology was a pre-eminent subject during the Middle Ages. Self-esteem: La confianza y respeto hacia uno mismo. Modern parents are very much afraid of conditions that can affect their children's self-esteem. Up-to-date: Actualizado o al día con la información más reciente. As a teacher I have to stay up-to-date in the field of technology. Mother-in-law: La madre del cónyuge de una persona. My mother-in-law is a wonderful cook. Anti-social: Contrario a las normas y valores sociales. When I was young, I met some anti-social guys at school. Post-war: Después de la guerra, especialmente haciendo referencia a períodos de reconstrucción. Everyone expects a better universal understanding in Ukraine's post-war times. Co-owner: Una persona que comparte la propiedad de algo con otra u otras personas. It is very difficult to be the co-owner of a bicycle.

Good lecture

  • My brother-in-law recently bought a new car.
  • Today, children are less-self sufficient than 50 years ago.
  • There are eighty-four steps on that mountain.
  • The state-of-the-art design makes the car more efficient
    The company is using a state of the art program to store information. To improve their reward system, they requested some information from each candidate, and these were the most complete answers:

Sophia
She is twenty-eight and lives with her husband and mother-in-law. She enjoys reading self-help books and playing video games.

Martin
He is forty-two and lives alone in a beach house. In his free time, he visits eco-friendly shops and shares videos to help promote these businesses.

This new program will be used to give employees benefits that are closer to their interests.

I write the answers before the teacher shows the answers.
My brother-in-law recently bought a new car.
Today, children are less self-sufficient than 50 years ago.
They are eighty-four steps on that mountain.
The state-of-the-art design makes the car more efficient.

Here are the answers of the worksheet exercise.

  1. state-of-the-art

  2. twenty-eight

  3. mother-in-law

  4. self-help

  5. forty-two

  6. eco-friendly

Writing it is a better way to improve.

Examples:

  • Dog-friendly restaurants are common in the city center (when there are two words describing a noun, like “dog friendly,” use hyphens).

  • One-of-a-kind items are unique treasures (if several words describe a noun, like “one-of-a-kind,” hyphenate them all).

  • State-of-the-art devices are saving lives worldwide (hyphenate words like “state-of-the-art” when they describe a noun).

  • Ex-presidents’ meeting is an annual event (for words like “ex” or “self,” hyphenate them with the following word).

  • My mother-in-law is 56 and lives in Italy (hyphenate words in relationships like “mother-in-law”).

  • Eighty-four steps lead up the mountain (Hyphenate numbers from 21 to 99 when writing them in words).
    In our activity:

  • My brother-in-law just got a new car (remember to hyphenate in family relationships).

  • Children are less self-sufficient now than 50 years ago (hyphenate words like “self” when necessary).

  • The mountain has eighty-four steps (hyphenate numbers in writing, especially from 21 to 99).

  • The state-of-the-art design enhances the car’s efficiency (for descriptions like “state-of-the-art,” use hyphens).

  • I learned how to drive when I was 15-years-old.
  • My brother-in-law recently bought a new car.
  • Today, children are less self-sufficient than 50-years-ago.
  • There are eighty-four steps on that mountain.
  • The state-of-the-arte desing maks the car more efficient.
About the glitch: CHAT-GPT made this remark on my question: (I ASKED) What is correct to say: "I learned to drive when I was 15-years-old", or "I learned to drive when I was 15 years old".? (ChatGPT ANSWERED) The correct way to say it is: "I learned to drive when I was 15 years old." You do not need hyphens in this context.
I learned how to drive when I was 15 years-old. My brother-in-law recently bought a new car. Today, children are less self-sufficient than 50 years ago. There are eighty-four steps on that mountain. The state-of-the-art design makes the car more efficient.
* I learned how to drive when I was 15-years-old. * My brother-in-law recently bought a new car. * Today, children are less self-sufficient than 50 years ago. * There are eighty-four steps on thet mountain. * The state-of-the-art desing makes the car more efficient.
The rule for using hyphen is incorrect. Here you are a ```js https://www.proofreadnow.com/blog/when-to-hyphenate-an-age ``` where describes the usage of hyphen.
