    Link: Explain the shape of the graph. - I would say that the answer is correct.

    Heh... something I`ve been tempted to do.

    This guy kept misspelling the word "straight" though as "strait". Strange...

    What?
    this answer is correct?!!
    the Q asked to explain the graph, ok, maybe he should have put the whole time and mass thing going on, but this answer is also correct.
    Although I did like the elephant one better.
    heh heh, elephants.

    That`s what happens if lazy teachers don`t formulate their question properly. No doubt: this isn`t what they had in mind, but they did explain the shape of the graph. If this is not the answer they wanted they should`ve asked a better question. Full marks to the student from me. :)

    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.

    Firstly even I know that asnwer and I haven`t done maths or physics for about 4 years now and so have little to no recolection of various details.

    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!???

    this one is the best, the elephant in the way comes second, and because there are no other competitors, the graph comes third.

    lmao the find x one is great, also loved the elephant one, and this one is alright too lol^^

    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

    Tsk, tsk, tsk. There`s no unit of time given on the x axis. How are we to know whether it`s seconds, hours or even years? If I didn`t put the proper units on my graphs in my exams then I`d lose marks. Poor show there.

    "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.

    A lot of teachers will give you at least one point of credit for writing SOMETHING on your paper, even if it is not correct, or in some cases even relevant to the actual question.

    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.

    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.

    Sorry for all of you trying to `argue the point` that he should have 100% on this question. There`s a certain point where `common sense` comes into play and a math question needs to be answered like a math question, and not like some idiot who hasn`t put the basic two-and-two together. That`s called being a smart-ass. It`s not entertaining.

    I hate these badly worded questions though. `Describe the shape of this graph" Yeah, it`s a downward slope, there you go, drat off.
