Lol.I got the apple and california widow questions wrong.
I didn't count the Moses and baseball questions since those questions are biased against people who don't know much about baseball and Moses
A doctor gives you three pills telling you to take one every half hour.
How many minutes would the pills last?
60 - Start with the 1st pill, 30 minutes later take the 2nd, then 30 minutes for the 3rd.
YEs!this answer is incorrect
every half hour, this is not a half hour yet which might not happen for a half hour
for instance, if he said take this with every meal, the meal I had most recently doesn't count
if a doctor wants you to take one immediatly he says take one now and then every half hour
I remember a regence question I personally corrected in the state of new york too....after review of my correction they decided everyone's answer was correct
that was the wrong decision, my answer was the only correct answer however since the people that wrote the question got it wrong they couldn't expect the students to get it right
Yeah, but with thought the questions answers were clear.It seemed pretty obvious to me that the answer wasn't 90 minutes, and after a little thought 60 minutes made plenty of sense. The test basically puts you up against your gut reaction to the questions -- perception is much of it, but the point is to think beyond that. For Americans, our gut reaction to the 4th of July is Independence Day, so initially we might read the first question as "Do they have an Independence Day in England?" when that's obviously not the real question being asked.
When compared to the rest, I do think the baseball and Moses questions are out of place. They rely more on knowledge than intelligence. My wife didn't know what an "inning" constituted in baseball, so that question wasn't fair for her. Overall I think it's a good test, though, and helps you see how your mind works.
Yeah, but with thought the questions answers were clear.
The pills question was never...
It could have been either...
it can't be 60 minutes muzikoolThat's strange because it was clear to me (and others as noted above) that the answer was not 90 and then made perfect sense that it would be 60. You only say it wasn't clear because you missed it. I don't see you complaining about any of the questions you got correct.
