This test was given in my K-12 Evaluation class last week to demonstrate flaws in test designs, and how you can still get a high score without actually knowing jack. Those questions all do have correct answers, and they're not that hard to figure out. Can anyone get the right answers and explain why?

(I'll put up the correct answers and why on Friday, if nobody gets it first)

Anyway, it was interesting to see that some of those words actually exists in my dictionary.

1. a - the best guess posible in this situation as the cluss appears in both the question and that answer.

2. a - not sure, were the question to imply multiple answers then there would be a good answer. the best guess would be a for the same reason as 1.

3. c - all the other choices are absolute when the question says frequently.

4. d - well, this is is slightly guessing, but the fact that it says a(n) may lean towards this, also looking down to #7, the answer is backed up.

5. a - the question implies multiple answers with the use of "are" and a is the only one with multiple answers.

6. a - i guessed between the only plausible answers a and c.

7. c - explained in 4

8. d - i just followed the pattern of the rest of it =P.

1 a) Because cluss-prags and cluss are mentioned in the question and answer
2 a) Trasses and Trassig sound similar :?
3 b) a guess
4 d) The question ends in "a(n)" which means that "ignu" is the only possible correct answer
5 a) Because the question asks for reasons and b),c) & d) only give one reason.
6 d) because vost appears in more answers than the others
7 c) In question 4 the fribbled breg was mintering with an ignu so fribbled breg is the answer
8 a) another guess
