How about the following:

> Q: In what instance would you use an imperative vs a continuance vs a
> directive?
> A: i don't know = not very experienced
> A: An imperative is a ____ and is used to ____; A continuance is a ____
> and is used to _______; A directive is a _____ and is used to ______ =
> somewhat experienced or freshly graduated from college grammar
A: A document has quality and depth if all imperatives are followed
by a continuance and have a directive. An example from my portfolio is
______ = experienced

> Q: How do you distinguish prescriptive from descriptive?
> A: Prescriptive would apply to the writing of requirements while
> descriptive would apply to the writing of definitions.
>
Q: What tool do you use to check the readability of a document?

Q: When does text structure matter and how do you test its depth?

Q: When does the size of the document matter and how do you test it?
