class answers to curious exam questions

hey everyone

one of those excellent articles appeared in The Daily Mail today that we all love. you know, ones where you get really strange answers to what some would consider straightforward enough exam questions.

impressively, The Daily Mail limited their usual right wing "the world is all doomed" paranoia to the healdine, and just lets get people get on with enjoying the answers. here are a few of the better ones they have on display!

first off, has anyone proved that this is in fact not true?

and who could argue with the logic behind this answer?

for all we know this admittedly short answer might be the case of someone questioning our understanding of modern biology.....

likewise, if this was part of a phonetically given exam, you could understand the answer given. in written form, alas......

i have no idea if the next one is close to the truth or not, either way the person giving the answer clearly has a soft spot for her anyway....

has the person who gave this answer never seen how well dressed the members of Duran Duran and Slade are?

i love the mathematical correction to the below answer!

what have the Romans ever done for us was a question from a famous, funny film. given us the ability to talk, according to this student!

what's the problem with this answer?

and a final one.....smoking and cycling? wow, no wonder he was knighted.....

methinks it will be a very good idea to purchase the book that these all came from! F In Exams: The Best Test Paper Blunders by Richard Benson would be the name of it, and it sounds like a most excellent idea for a Christmas gift!

be excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
