Well, regarding Nathan Hale, I went with the answer given on the U. Conn. quiz for all questions...even ones I had problems with so :P
The quiz can be found here. If you want to go after the veracity of any answers email them.
I may be a bit rusty yet as can be seen on the Julius Caesar question in the other thread, but I've listened to the "this question doesn't make sence" complaints from freshmen before. It can be hard to defend questions from other sources....like in the middle of the test (I used to proctor exams for history profs) one of the smarter students comes up and askes "does he mean this or this?" The answer's B...now go sit down.
I used to tell my friends that I would rather take a test than make one up. It's hard to come up with 100 fair, well worded, and overall good multiple choice questions that everyone in a 150 student class can understand and mark C on. Well, we hope the mark C for the correct answer rather than guessing.
And don't get me started on map questions!
