1: Does this sentence contain a double negative that confuses the meaning of the sentence?
'She doesn't know why she feels so tired.'
You said: no
Well done, there is only one negative in this sentence. The negative word is doesn't.  
 2: Does this sentence contain a double negative that confuses the meaning of the sentence?
'Daniel doesn't have no interest in football.'
You said: yes
Well done, that's right! Doesn't and no are both negatives, so they have cancelled each other out in this sentence. The correct sentence would be: 'Daniel doesn't have any interest in football.' OR 'Daniel has no interest in football.'  
 3: Does this sentence contain a double negative that confuses the meaning of the sentence?
'There aren't any ripe bananas in this bunch.'
You said: no
Well done! There is only one negative in this sentence - aren't.  
 4: Does this sentence contain a double negative that confuses the meaning of the sentence?
'No-one is going to Ayesha's party.'
You said: no
Well done! The only negative in this sentence is no-one.  
 5: Does this sentence contain a double negative that confuses the meaning of the sentence?
'The accident wasn't nobody's fault.'
You said: yes
Well done, that's right. Wasn't and nobody are both negatives, so in this sentence they cancel each other out. The correct sentence would be: 'The accident wasn't anybody's fault.' OR 'The accident was nobody's fault.'  
 6: Does this sentence contain a double negative that confuses the meaning of the sentence?
'You have no right to speak that way to nobody.'
You said: yes
Well done! No and nobody are both negatives. The correct way to write this sentence would be: 'You have no right to speak that way to anybody.'  
 7: Does this sentence contain a double negative that confuses the meaning of the sentence?
'I have no idea why Abraham didn't pass his driving test.'
You said: no
That's right! That was difficult, so well done on getting it right. There ARE two negative words in this sentence - no and didn't - but they don't refer to the same thing. No is talking about the idea and didn't is talking about the driving test. Remember that negative words are only a double negative, which cancel each other out, if they are talking about the same thing.  
 8: Does this sentence contain a double negative that confuses the meaning of the sentence?
'Maxine hasn't never said thank you for her birthday present.'
You said: yes
Well done! Hasn't and never are both negatives being used to talk about the same thing. The correct way to write this sentence is: 'Maxine hasn't ever said thank you for her birthday present.' OR 'Maxine has never said thank you for her birthday present.'  
 9: Does this sentence contain a double negative that confuses the meaning of the sentence?
'There isn't nowhere Emile hasn't been for his holidays.'
You said: yes
Well done, that's right! Isn't and nowhere are both negatives being used to talk about the same thing. The correct way to write this sentence is: 'There isn't anywhere Emile hasn't been for his holidays.' OR 'There is nowhere Emile hasn't been for his holidays.'  
 10: Does this sentence contain a double negative that confuses the meaning of the sentence?
'Neither of my sisters aren't coming for the weekend.'
You said: no
Sorry, that's wrong. Neither and aren't are both negative and they cancel each other out - so this sentence means that one of the sisters IS coming for the weekend. The correct way to write this sentence is: 'Neither of my sisters are coming for the weekend'.
 11: Select the option that is a correct sentence and means the same as this given sentence:
'Marc has never been to America.'
You said: Marc hasn't ever been to America.
Brilliant, that's right. 'Marc has never been to America' contains one positive (has) and one negative (never). In this sentence there is still one positive and one negative, but they are swapped around. Hasn't is the negative and ever is the positive. 
 12: Select the option that is a correct sentence and means the same as this given sentence:
'I don't have any money to lend to you.'
You said: I have no money to lend to you.
Well done, that's right. In 'I don't have any money to lend to you' there is one negative (don't) and one positive (any). In 'I have no money to lend to you' the situation is the same, but have is the positive and no is the negative. 
 13: Select the option that is a correct sentence and means the same as this given sentence:
'I'd rather listen to Alicia Keys than anyone else.'
You said: There isn't anybody I'd rather listen to than Alicia Keys.
Congratulations, that's right. This sentence has the same sense as the original and only contains one negative (isn't). 
 14: Select the option that is a correct sentence and means the same as this given sentence:
'None of the available jobs interests Rashid.'
You said: Rashid isn't interested in any of the available jobs.
Well done, that's right. What a star you are. This sentence has just one negative (isn't) and has the same sense as the original. 
 15: Select the option that is a correct sentence and means the same as this given sentence:
'Marion hasn't read any of the instructions properly.'
You said: Marion has read none of the instructions properly.
Well done! This sentence has the same sense as the original and only contains one negative (none).
16: This is a quote from a job application letter and it's wrong. Choose which option below matches what you think this person meant to say:
'I have never committed no crime.'
You said: I have never committed a crime.
Well done! This a sentence that says that the writer has no criminal record. 
 17: This is a quote from a job application letter and it's wrong. Choose which option below matches what you think this person meant to say:
'I have not never been late for work.'
You said: I have always been early to work.
Sorry, that's wrong. This is a positive statement, but it doesn't match what the writer was trying to say. Never being late is not the same as always being early. 
 18: This is a quote from a job application letter and it's wrong. Choose which option below matches what you think this person meant to say:
'Nobody's never given me a bad report.'
You said: I've never been given a bad report.
