F is for fun, flippant, fuzzy, fractured, freaked out answers ... or is it just for f'in' exams? !,
This review is from: F in Exams: The Very Best Totally Wrong Test Answers (Paperback)
F IN EXAMS is a short, short compendium of some of the funniest completely wrong answers to test questions posed by teachers in a variety of high school subjects - math, physics, biology, history, geography, English, business and so on! In many cases, you simply have to shake your head at the depth of misunderstanding or the utter lack of knowledge that some students must have. At other times you'll find yourself howling at the creativity of a student attempting to answer a question where it is absolutely obvious that the student not only doesn't have a clue but knows it as well.
A couple of examples will give you the flavour of the entire book:
What did Mahatma Gandhi and Genghis Khan have in common? Unusual names.
What is Sir Francis Drake known for? He circumsized the world with a 100 ft clipper.
And it's worth observing in passing that the blame for at least some of this humour rests squarely on the shoulders of the teachers that composed such poorly thought out questions. For example:
Name the successor of the first Roman Emperor? The second Roman Emperor.
Describe the differences between the February Revolution and the October Revolution. One occurred in February and one occurred in October
Well ... natch, eh!
