Question (apologies if i've asked this before):

Bereft of grammatical notation as this sentence is, would it then, be an acceptable sentence if one added the appropriate grammatical notation (ie. commas, colons, etc.)?

On the exam yesterday Tom where Barry had had had had had had had had had had had the teacher's approval.

Oh all right, kids. I've tortured you long enough. Get ready to take notes...

On the exam yesterday Tom where Barry had had had had had had had had had had had the teacher's approval.

Without grammar...nonsensical rubbish.

With grammar however...

On the exam yesterday, Tom, where Barry had had "had had", had had "had"; "had had" had had the teacher's approval.

You see, the exam had a question (or i should say "had had" a question), which required the two students, Barry and Tom, to enter either "Had Had" or "Had" as the correct grammatical response to a given dialogue. "Had had" being the Past Perfect tense of the verb "To Have". For example,

A) It was strange that he had no money, as he'd had a good day at the tables.
B) It was strange that he had no money, as he had a good day at the tables.

Now, if we're talking about this in the past tense, Answer A is correct, which uses the "had had" ("he'd" is a conjunction of "he had" and is commonly used for semantical fluidity.) This question was presumedly already glossed over in class, and the teacher had given his approval, in this context, to the former. "Had had" had had the teacher's approval.

You see, kids. You see what fun words can be!

Now, for the next question:

Provided three vowels are inserted in this string of letters, can a sentence be made of it? And if so, how?

QQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQ

Good Luck!

as long as you put in 3 vowels can you add as many more vowels and consonants as you want?

No, i'm afraid you're only permitted to use 3 vowels...no other letters.
