Half-past a quarter till is a quarter after

More perfect logic from The Markus Files...

Homework paper from today.

I absolutely cracked up when I saw this. I'm really sorry he got his answers marked wrong. (The better handwriting is his teacher's) Because, you've got to admit, they are completely logical.

Just.. not a match! The board goes back.

Markus also points out that Betty either has to be Mr. Horlik's wife or not. How can she be his wife for question 27 but not question 28!? It just doesn't make sense!!

Matthew, not to be outdone, offers up the possibility that she got married sometime between the questions. But Markus counters (logically) that she can't be both musically talented and not musically talented.

"But Dad, aren't my answers kind of reasonable..??"

You bet they are, man. You bet they are.

The "correct answer" for the second one is absolutely wrong and illogical.

The President of the United States is a man.

John Caparoon is a man.

Therefore, John Caparoon is the President of the United States.

I'm with Dave - I think that Marcus is way smarter than the test.

You know, I always thought that Deb and the kids were really intelligent. Now you have recently acquired conclusive data.
