I would have given the student high marks

A student got 0% on this exam ***

1. In which battle did Napoleon die?
* his last battle
2. Where was the Declaration of Independence signed?
* at the bottom of the page
3. River Ravi flows in which state?
* liquid
4. What is the main reason for divorce?
* marriage
5. What is the main reason for failure?
* exams
6. What can you never eat for breakfast?
* Lunch and dinner
7. What looks like half an apple?
* The other half
8. If you throw a red stone into the blue sea what it will become?
* It will simply become wet
9. How can a man go eight days without sleeping?
* No problem, he sleeps at night.
10. How can you lift an elephant with one hand?
* You will never find an elephant that has only one hand.
11. If you had three apples and four oranges in one hand and four apples and three oranges in other hand, what would you have ?
* Very large hands
12. If it took eight men ten hours to build a wall, how long would it take four men to build it?
* No time at all, the wall is already built.
13. How can you drop a raw egg onto a concrete floor without cracking it?
* Any way you want, concrete floors are very hard to crack.
*** And here's how I know this isn't a real exam:
  • The questions aren't about one subject ~ #11 and #12 are about math, #1 is about history, #3 is about geography, #4 is about social studies.
  • The questions are made up especially to fit tricky answers ~ Who teaches "how" to drop a raw egg (#13) or "how" to lift an elephant (#10) or "how" to go eight days without sleep (#9)?
  • What kind of questions are #6, #7, and #8?
"What can you never eat for breakfast?" (never?)
"What looks like half an apple?" (Looks like?)
"If you throw a red stone into the blue sea what it will become?" (become?)

Even though it is fake, it's still fun to read the clever answers :-)
