That, that is, is that, that is not, is not, is that, it that is.

I think thats it. Not sure though. When I first looked at it I thought it was impossible, but its not. Interesting.

That, that is, is that. That is not, is not. Is that it? That is.

Ok, much better. You can't argue with that. Its right. Right?

Look at it again. It makes sense and its gramatically correct. It is right. Maybe not exactly the way you have the answer to be right, but my answer isn't wrong.

There is only ONE answer that is correct. Keep trying. You have to use only the words in teh First post in that order.

That. That is. Is that? That is not, is not. Is that it? That is.

What prize do I get? Cash?

Edit: I thought we were only supposed to use commas. Anyway, sentence edited.

That's a run-on sentence. Gramatically incorrect. Too many commas, and its confusing. I swear, mine really is right.

NO ITS NOT, I would know. Keep trying.
