"C" isn't always the right answer...

Have you ever taken a test where the answer is either true or false? It's hard to fail a test like this since you have pretty good odds of getting the answer right. A little intuition, a little common sense, and you're bound to guess correctly.

Right? Well, not really, apparently...

If the correct answer is either A (true) or B (false), picking C is not going to do it for you:

Here's what his instructor had to say:

Dear Michael,

Every year I attempt to boost my students' final grades by giving them this relatively simple exam consisting of 100 True/False questions from only 3 chapters of material. For the past 20 years that I have taught Intro Communications 101 at this institution I have never once seen someone score below a 65 on this exam. Consequently, your score of a zero is the first in history and ultimately brought the entire class average down a whole 8 points. There were two possible answer choices: A (True) and B (False). You chose C for all 100 questions in an obvious attempt to get lucky with a least a quarter of the answers. It's as if you didn't look at a single question. Unfortunately, this brings your final grade in this class to failing. See you next year!May God have mercy on your soul.

P.S. If all else fails, go with B from now on. B is the new C

Too bad his comments were wasted on someone who apparently can't read.

Good point, Diesel. He could never appreciate that superb comeback!

Speaking of comebacks, I'm glad you're back! Hope you had a good vacation.
