You did really well on the Style test, a couple of you even getting a perfect score.

One mistake was MY fault - It is Drug Enforcement Agency not administration as I told you. Obviously, I didn't penalize anyone for writing administration.

One common mistake most of you made - you abbreviated the names of states in a senence. You only abbreviate when it is part of an address i.e. 66 N. 31st Street, Orlando, Fla. or She lives in Montgomery, Ala. But it is .... The FBI took part in mass arrests in California, Texas, Hawaii, New York and Illinois.

Often helps to read the sentence aloud... you wouldn't say ... mass arrests in Calif., Texas, Hawaii, N.Y. and Ill.
