Question about a question

I?ve taken the online test three times now?the last two for fun?and there is one question that has come up each time that is bugging me?only slightly but I?ve got excess time on my hands.


Anyway?I can?t remember the exact wording but it goes something like this:

Which of the following does NOT contribute to leaking gutters.

A: Improper slope. Well?I guess you could call it spillage rather than leaks.
B: Type of material. We still have old wood gutters and rusted through steel ones in this area.
C: Multiple sharp angles: Every joint is a possible source for leaks.
D: Disconnected or broken downspouts. Duh!

Don't mean to be a pain in the a$% but is there actually a right answer for this one?

Jeff…


Yep...I've been answering B by utilizing ESP to read the mind of whoever wrote the question. Must be something about the way it's worded that has caused me to waste my time, and now yours, on this.

Sorry...think I'll go do something more productive like sort my socks.

Correct Jeff:


Type of material (not age) is not in itself a contibuter to leaks (like the other choices are).

I just re-read my previous post. I didn't mean for it to be sarcastic in any way aimed at you. I do thank you for answering. I just don't know why I asked such a stupid question in the first place. ![icon_rolleyes.gif](upload://iqxt7ABYC2TEBomNkCmZARIrQr6.gif) I must be looking at too many 100 year old homes.

Hi Richard,


so I hope the sock drawer is nice and tidy, next time you can answer, as to why some questions are seemily nonsense ![icon_wink.gif](upload://ssT9V5t45yjlgXqiFRXL04eXtqw.gif)
