Actually, I think that the student was correct in all his answers except for numbers 1 and 3.

Napoleon didn't die in battle, that's a trick question, which should be disallowed. Based on modern analysis of hair samples of Boney, who died in exile on St. Helena, he was poisoned by long-term surreptitious administrations of poison. Depending on whom you believe, this was either done by his doctor, acting alone out of personal malice, or by the British Govt, acting covertly to get rid of Napoleon once and for all. in either case, good riddance for humanity!

Regarding question 3, according to the Laws of Fluid Dynamics, the River Ravi would flow in both it's liquid and it's gaseous states. I'd give the student half credit for this question.

/pedantic moment :-)

I think the teacher should get an "F" for the poorly written questions, including misuse of capital letters. Regarding question 3, water also flows in its solid state.

Speaking of which, did you know Canadians can walk on water? We play games on it, too.

And inappropriate use of punctuation. Notice the commas where they shouldn't be. Must be some affirmative action involved here.

I can't figure out why do we (myself included, I confess) still laugh at inanities invented by adults about kids...

But I admit, some of the stuff is funny.
