The following questions were asked in last year’s GED examination and are supposed to be genuine answers (from 16 year-olds)…………

A. The sun shines down on the leaves and makes them perspire.

For those out there who haven’t figured it out yet, APRIL FOOLS!
There are no such short answer questions on the GED. As a former high school and adult education teacher I can assure you that a high school diploma is more easily obtained than the GED. If public schools used GED prep and testing materials the graduation rate would be shockingly dismal.
Sara, I guess you didn’t see the last line where it says “April Fools.”
