Some of these questions make you want to answer things like "The Old Man and The Ferris Wheel", even if you do get it wrong... I remember once in Anatomy class, the instructor asked us what the particular definition for one of the parts of the ear was, and one of the definitions was d. "a cathedral for ants". I knew I had almost all the other questions right, so I marked it d., just to see if he would notice. I can no longer remember any of the parts of the ear, which shows you exactly how much attention I was paying. That would be why I do better with questions involving literature, rather than anantomy.
