Hi, the article makes no reference to “me recuerda” without either an “a” or a “que”, but several of the questions require this answer. John suggested a year ago that the article account for this situation: 

“For the sake of completeness I would make a small change.

Something “reminds me of” OR “is similar to”: Do not omit the “a” [from Recordar + a]

Something “is brought to mind”: Omit the “a” [from Recordar + a].

Something reminds me that: Use Recordar + que”

 If John is correct, could you please make this change because as it stands the article seems incomplete. Thanks!

Agree, this is the least clear article in C1 for me to understand and apply. And then the  Quiz questions require answers not explained or demonstrated in the article.  Unfortunately, the Kwiziq editors do not seem to care to clarify this particular topic by giving several examples without using "a" along with an explanatory paragraph.  I remain confused and guessing.
