Borg Robot vs. man -- can you tell the difference?

The Associated Press has started running stories on earning reports produced by an algorithm. Take this quiz and see if you can guess which ones were written by humans and which ones by a machine. Below are fragments of news stories published by the AP.

AP started automating the writing of certain news stories in the middle of last year, collaborating with Automated Insights, a six-year-old North Carolina-based company. A computer running Automated Insight's specialized artificial intelligence software plucks out relevant details from companies' financial reports and other databases.

I was fooled by several of their robo-articles. (I got six out of ten).
