To Jeff. D'Ooge pages in wrong order.

Hello, Jeff.
D'Ooge PDF has pages 11 and 12(21 and 22 of the PDF file) in wrong order.
And it's been that way since the file was up there.
I wondered if it is fixed these days and checked it out, but it was still that way.
Can it be taken care of sooner or later, please?

Ex 99 Question

Salvete!

I was reviewing older material and I came across a problem for part II of exercise 99, question 2.

"My son Sextus is carrying his booty to the Roman camp." It says not to use dative.

I came up with "Filius meus Sextus praedam suam ad castram Romanam portat." I felt weird using the accusative for Roman camp but I know I've seen that use somewhere in D'Ooge already.

The key gave me the ...

189, page 81 key translation

Salve,

I was translating the english to latin exercise 189.
"There will be no danger, if we are (shall have been) careful".

When I noticed my translation was slightly incorrect compared to the key you guys here at textkit wrote. I think my problem lies in understanding the declination of adjective Attent-

My translation:
Erit non periculum, si attentum fuerimus

Key translation:
Non erit periculum, si attenti fuerimus

I wasn't entirely sure how to decline ...

Answer key response to 353 Q 2

Salvete,

Apologies for the number of posts i'm putting up but the question here concerns whether quo (abl of qui) should be used in a purpose clause containing a comparative.

The Question is :

They are setting out at daybreak in order that they may make a longer march before night.

The answer key gives:

Prima luce proficiscuntur ut ante noctem iter longius faciant.

Given the comparative longius is used, should not quo be used ...

Ex 353 Q 4 subjunctive purpose clauses with personal pronoun

Salvete,

I am currently on the subjunctive and trying to figure out the translation for Q 4:

The Gauls wage many wars to free their fatherland from slavery.

The answer gives the following response:

Galli bella multa gerunt ut patriam suam servitute liberent.

Why was the the conjunctive "ut" used instead of the relative pronoun "qui".

And if the relative pronoun can be used, would it be qui (the nominative masculine plural since, in ...

Ex 298 Q 6 English to Latin quisquam versus aliquis

Salve,

The question asks to translate: "Did you see some one in the country? I did not see any one."

The answer key translates this as : "Vidistine ruri quemquam? Quemquam non vidi"

Should not the first quemquam refering to the "some one" be translated using the indefinite pronoun aliquis instead of the indefinite pronoun quisquam?

Thankyou.
