    Does anyone make funny answer choices to multiple choice questions? I like to do that on one question per test. I think it helps lighten the mood a little for the kids.

    This time I had a question ''Who were the two scientists who discovered the structure of DNA?'' and one answer was ''Doc Brown and Einstein'':lol: Although, I don't think they got it this time:rolleyes:

    Back in the middle school, where we were required to use the multiple choice quizzes that came with the literature book, I noticed that one of them spelled out a very racy, inappropriate phrase.

    I knew which students got the right answers by the expressions on their faces. One of the other teachers reported it and it was removed. Too bad, huh.

    Apparently, I'm nine years old in my head.

    I saw this on another website, but It was question number 50 on a college test that said, "Mr. Martell has run out of questions for this test; therefore, the answer to this question is A. Choose A and you will get this question right.

    In Abnormal Psychology, the choices for every question were: A) often B) frequently C) sometimes D) occasionally E) never

    It was a real test, and apparently there were subtleties involved. I must have blown off the class session where they were explained. I never slept in again, that semester.

    I think my email exploded!

    The right answers spelled out: 1) A 2) B 3) I 4) G 5)C 6) N
    7)T 8)A 9)T 10)E 11)D 12)A 13)M 14)N 15)A 16)S 17)S

    I never said it made sense. But with one letter on each line, it made the smart kids laugh out loud. I posted it in the lounge and we used it as a catch-phrase all year.

    My apologies to those of you with acute sensibilities.

    Oh wow! :lol:
    I think I would have answered 'sometimes' for all of them and hoped for the best. :D

    Of course, if one of the options was 'maybe' ......... :help:

    I guess shocking is funny. But it might be fun to have posts of common test questions, each with at least one choice that has some deep comedic value. I like those that make me go back to think through again and again and make me laugh over and over again.

    No funny suggestions. But I do have a simple request. Your stem makes it sound as though only two people contributed to the discovery of DNA's structure. Please don't leave out Wilkins and Franklin!
