Um... I wouldn`t.
I hate these badly worded questions though. `Describe the shape of this graph" Yeah, it`s a downward slope, there you go, drat off.
Should be all the marks.
Got a one from me. Pointless, useless, makes serious remarks towards one`s intelligence... etc. Even if they`re incredibly `intelligent` IQ wise, they`re stupid for thinking they`re cool or funny for this.
I remember another one like this but it involved an elephant or something like that.. velocity, friction kind of problem stopped by an elephant *shrug*
Most times if I don`t know the answer, I`ll write down a few relevant numbers so I can at least gain part credit, but if I`m not pressed for time I`ll do something creative. It depends on the teacher. Some get the point of it and laugh, some find it immature.
I`ve gotten full credit on a few problems when I was in high school for fabricating a short story completely irrelevant to the question.
"Looks like radioactive decay."
Not really. I don`t know about your crazy American graphs, but we usually have counts per <time unit> against time. Not overall mass...but it should reach zero mass or thereabouts when it levels off to be radioactive decay. There are other niggling things about it too but that`s the most obvious one. So no, it`s not radioactive decay.
win your describing or explaining a picture how deferent is it going to be anyway.
we gpot told ``if you dont know the answer, just put anything down, make a guess! it might be right!``
so on the last math paper we did me and a couple of friends put down answers such as canada, banana and red ^^
needless to say they werwe the WRONG answers, but...you never know, they COULD have been right :P
whats the `find x`` one?
So to make a rather obvious point ignorance isn`t clever! Putting down a stupid answer for no reason is entirely fruitless.
Secondly nobody has pointed out that out of the three marks available the person got one right!???
No, he *described* the graph. He failed to read the question correctly. To explain a graph you have to talk about why it`s shaped like it is.
i only find these funny whent htey are forced to marked as right, like the `find x` one...that happeed at a school near me, and after a long (a year or so) debate, it was finaly marked right...
Can you find X?
This guy kept misspelling the word "straight" though as "strait". Strange...
