Proofreading Test and Bar Bet

Back in the day when we all would walk a mile for a Camel, this little test was usually good for winning $10 at a bar (presuming you had your pack of Camels with you). 

The Test: 

Count the number of times the letter “e” appears in the paragraph on the back of the pack of Camel cigarettes shown (not case sensitive): what number do you come up with? 

Post your answer in the “Comments”. And don’t take too long counting! 


  1. Note: the paragraph to be read does NOT include the “Manufactured by RJ Reynolds…” part below the ruled line.

  2. Eleven, not counting the "Manufactured by RJ Reynolds..." part

  3. I have felt better Proofreading Test! Thanks for a good arrangement! I am also happy with this chief rate of
    online proofreading.
