Does your college education make you believe that you can at least answer the questions framed for a five-year-old? If your answer is affirmative then you are wrong, just like me.
I would like to allege the quizzer for the confusing questions here. The easy way out. From here on you will see, we all adults will agree on this.
A New York mom Royce Winnick who is a professional photographer posted pictures of an assignment of her five-year-old daughter.
The assignment focused on the alphabet ‘T’. It included a section where the kid needed to ‘tap out the word in the picture and write out the sounds you hear’. Ironically, as if the instructions did not require much comprehension, the assignment was even tougher.
The first three answers were simple- tub, ten and top.
It was the last one with a drawing of five bunnies that every adult got caught up with. What could it be? Twins? Thumpers? Or twabbit?
Like Winnick, everyone believed that this is an error. But her daughter thought that the correct answer would be ‘rabbits’, but she eventually settled with ‘pet’.
The teacher marked the answer ‘OK’, though it was not correct. Now, when out of curiosity Winnick asked what the answer was, the teacher replied that it was ‘vet’. How on earth?
Like you and I, Winnick was also confused. Is there an explanation? No, there is none.
Winnick thought that it is just a one-time episode. But, no. Her daughter had another one of those assignment sheets with not-so-easy answers.
The answers to the last two blanks are ‘kin’ and ‘Ken’. How? Like Winnick, I have no answer either.
How is a five-year-old supposed to answer these? And, could you even get near to these answers? I could not.
