They don’t get any better in college either.
During my year as a TA I had to read some really bad answers.
q: What is bronze made of a: Diluted gold
q: What did the Athenian use to build their fleet a: Silver from the [Larium] mines (this was a correct answer)
followup q: What were the ships made of a: silver from the mines.
These were classics that I don’t think I’ll ever forget.

Worst was the bonus questions in a Roman archaeology class.
They were 1. What is the color of Napolean’s white horse. 2.Who is buried in Grant’s tomb? (Mrs grant would have been accepted). 3. What holiday are we about to celebrate? (exam was given the day before Easter break). and 4. What class is this? which was actually on the top of the front of the exam.
Only 11 people out of a class of 150 actually got all of them correct.
