Consistency of answers

There were several alternate answers to 'I was taking an exam this morning' and they all used the word 'un exam' But in the full text presented at the end, it became 'un examen'. I have noticed this sort of disagreement every once in a while.

Thanks, Jack

PS. The writing exercises are extremely helpful !

Hi Jack,

Both 

an examen

and

an exam

are given as possible answers because both are used in French nowadays.

The influence of English on young people is felt here and the tendency is to abbreviate so much I don't understand what they say sometimes!

But thank you for your kind comments, very appreciated!
