And the OS.
wait, get lucky with a quarter of the answers? since when does A,B,C,D,E mean quarters? i though it would be to guess a fifth of the exam paper?
That in itself is a fail professor
Awesome stuff tat!
I have lol'ed so much xD
Looks like Mrs. Palerider in the morning
not a,b,c,d,e .... A and B only ,see how A and B have a T or F above them ,..it's true or false . so if someone just picks all B , the professor is saying he might have gotten lucky enough to get 1/4 of all those B's right . but the student couldn't acknowledge what was going on enough to even get that right .
that is the professors point of view.
That makes no sense... If there were only two choices (A or B) then it's a 50/50 chance of getting answer right. Not a 1/4. And since there are actually 5 letters (A through E) it would be a 1/5 chance of getting right. No where does 1/4 make any sense.
THANKYOU!!! thats exactly the point i was making, the professor said about guessing to have a quarter chance of getting them right, which would mean A,B,C or D
but since there was A,B,C,D,E ? lol 20% chance each therefore a fifth cahnce of guessing it right buy sticking with one letter.
what is there not to understand ?
hes calling out his attempt and effort into the test in a sarcastic tone . pretty easy to see actually . because that is just lazy and not paying attention .
and you guys are acting like you are the ones with the answer sheet to even have an accurate number of how many of those are B , and how many are A . so if 1/4 of the answers are suppose to be B , and 3/4 are in fact A then 1/4 of the answers are correct if he had chosen all B . understand ?
c,d, and e are NOT USED , not selectable options . they should be blank! can't you see that ?
why does this even need explaining ....seriously.
And it wouldn't be "...get lucky with at least a quarter of the answers," but rather "get lucky with a quarter of the answers on average."
He's a history teacher, so we should let him slide.
lol and i quote
"you chose C for all 100 questions in an obvious attempt to get lucky with a quarter of the answers"
he says nothing about the percetange of answers that are "B", thats the point. Where does he generalise the "quarter" from?
"B" and a quarter has no direct link in that text.
All test like that I have ever taken like that had 4 possible answers WITH the extra E bubble that was NEVER used. Likewise when I took T/F test we only used A and B and pretended that c,d,e were not even there.
congrats on pointlessly over analyzing such a trivial thing; regardless of how many bubble columns there are, how many multiple choice tests have you people taken with five possible answers? its almost always four. how fitting, vault of fail.
also, a MAJOR WIN
What the hell guys, what's up with all this OT?
No that part is correct, it is XP 64 bit.
I think he meant that WinXP 64-bit is a FAIL OS..
Yeah it probably is. The pic is from my friends computer, and he says XP 644 is slow.
