Learning new, fascinating, and sometimes boring facts in school is a rather daunting task. If you really think about it, kids have to be prepared to learn new things every day and then regurgitate that information in the form of test answers. Sometimes, kids nail their tests and other times they provide answers that are wrong but worth a few points just because of the humor they bring to our lives. Here are some absolutely correct but wrong test answers that will have you rolling on the floor laughing.
I’m A Freeloader
This kid didn’t mince their words and for that, we love him. Because deep down, we definitely feel the same way. At least we know exactly where this kid stands on finding a job and supporting themselves. Maybe their attitude will change in the future and they’ll pick up a job or two, but honestly, we don’t know.
In the meantime, enjoy your free ride kid, it won’t last forever! What we would give to have nap time again!
This Teacher Received A Lesson In English
If you want the children in your classroom to give a certain answer, you should really consider how you pose the question. This student made a valid point and all they received was a -7 on the question. We really hope they knew the answer but wanted to mess with their teacher’s poor grammar choice.
You know, if we were teachers, we might go ahead and give this kid a point or two for creativity. Hey, he’s technically not wrong!
This Question Isn’t Realistic
The kid who answered this question cannot be fooled. They know that Halloween is fake and all the ghouls and goblins that come with it are just as bogus. This is why four ghosts minus one ghost equals zero because according to this kid, ghosts are not real. We can’t argue with that logic.
You kind of wonder if this kid is scared of ghosts and their parents had to remind them repeatedly that they are not real!
Write “Or” And Fail This Test
Alright, so technically this kid should have written < or > for each answer, but still, we know what they meant. Kids have crazy imaginations and what they dream up is usually pretty dang hilarious – but at the end of the day, they still have to give the right answers if they want to get ahead in school.
We hope that this teacher understood that this kid was just confused or messing around and let them retake the test.
There Could Be Truth In This Answer
The real answer was most likely B (Darwin’s theory of evolution says that animals able to adapt are more likely to survive), but this kid wasn’t having any of it. The death of that giraffe must have hit home because to call something a heartless creature is highly hurtful.
Or just maybe this kid has no interest in giraffes at all and is just not really an animal person, either.
This Answer Is Technically Right
This kid almost got this answer wrong because of their improper math but they recovered nicely and provided a completely suitable answer! With that in mind, we think we’d at least give him some points.
Thinking about it more, can you name six different animals that live in the Arctic? Seriously. We can’t! We give this kid bonus points for at least giving an answer that is technically correct, and we hope his teacher did too.
Well, That Escalated Quickly
If this kid’s path towards world domination is any indication we almost understand now why people who have attempted to rule the world failed. Maybe he should focus on building out his career, finding someone nice to settle down with and then go after world domination.
Technically, his answer is correct, even if world domination at such a young age is a bit daunting. Who knows though? Stranger things have happened.
This kid might be dealing with some issues that he could use some help with. Who are we to say he isn’t right about the engineer though. All those lonely nights spent in the open ocean may have led to some urges that the engineer couldn’t deny.
We’re buying it, but it’s pretty obvious that his teacher isn’t. Hopefully, she just let him off with a warning rather than contacting his parents. Still, nice try kid!
If you are going to give the wrong answer why not make it Hugh Jackman, right? At least the teacher thought this kid gave a clever answer. But the ‘clever’ note may be all this student got. We don’t know if they were given credit for their snarky answer but we think it deserves a round of applause in the least. Very clever indeed.
We think if it made the teacher laugh (even if just a little), this student deserves a point or two.
Not A Fan
This kid thinks school is hell and you know, he’s not entirely wrong. We’ve got news for you kid, there are millions of people who agree with you. At times, we were some of those millions!
We’re going out on a limb here to blame the American education system for failing this kid. We predict he’ll work in middle management one day where he can make his underlings’ lives hell.
A Morbid Answer – Let’s Get This Kid Some Help
If you are going to die why not go out with a big helping of milk, right? Apparently, that’s what this misinformed student thinks. On one hand — NO! On the other hand, this kid has a love of milk that makes them happy and that’s some good child raising right there. But seriously kid, NO!
We hope that this kid is the class clown and wasn’t serious. We laughed for a second, but our laughs quickly turned to fear!
This Kid Has A Good Head On His Shoulders
This kid rightfully pointed out that his teacher’s test didn’t give the best examples to choose from. If the man was actually hitting the dog it would have been a completely different story. We hope this young child received extra points for his thoughtful answer.
Seriously though, this teacher should definitely revisit their curriculum because having ‘hit’ as an option is not cool with us! Hopefully, this student wasn’t marked incorrect.
Saturn Isn’t A Single Lady
“Saturn was not a single lady.” That might be the most strange answer this teacher has ever had to write out for an incorrect test answer. (Not to mention, Saturn still exists…) This teacher seems a bit closed-minded to us. Carry on, kid.
In all seriousness though, we loved both the student’s answer and the teacher’s response. If we can’t bond over a mutual love of Beyonce then what can we bond over?
This Is The Perfect Example Of A Risk
If you really want to impress your teacher this is a good way to do it – albeit, it’s risky. This type of “risk” might not have been what the teacher was expecting but it worked. This is one of those questions we were happy to see a checkmark next to.
Kudos to this teacher since they allowed one of his or her pupils to take an actual risk and earn credit for it.
They Named Everything Like Asked
This attempt at a geometry lesson went sideways very quickly. Also, this kid spelled “Harry” wrong and whoever heard of the bizarre name someone “Tedison”? In any case, this student did name the quadrilaterals and that’s what the test question asked them to do.
This won’t fly in college, at least in most classes, so we hope this kid enjoys it while it lasts. And that they put their creativity to good use!
I Used Math — Give Me An ‘A’ Please
Math problems seem to deliver the funniest answers, for some reason. When kids decide to get sassy during a test that’s supposed to be about numbers and logic, it’s just the perfect setting for hilarity.
This kid nailed their response with a simple answer, “math.” We’re big fans of letting the answer speak for itself so in our book this young child should have received an A+ just for this answer alone.
Technically, He Did
The test question only said to expand the answer. By adding more spacing after each part of his answer this kid did exactly as instructed. Sure it’s not worth an “A” on his test, at least his teacher admitted that it was “very funny.”
Kids’ minds tend to work in some mysterious and funny ways. If only that creative way of thinking lasted past grade school for most of us, we’d be set.
It Was Found
Well teacher, there it is. Right there, above that line. That was probably the easiest question on the test! I know I aced that one.
Oh wait, you mean that’s not what the question meant? Variables were never an easy concept to understand and this kid showed that you need to be specific or else you might not get exactly what you were looking for. In cases like these, partial credit is a good idea.
Bob Isn’t Left With Just 7 Candy Bars
Whoever took this test was just being realistic. Forget the math involved, let’s look at the real concerning issue here and discuss the fact that Bob just ate 29 candy bars. Who does that? The person who took this test realized the absurdity of that endeavor and hit the answer with some facts.
What on earth was this teacher thinking anyway? The question is ridiculous. No one needs that many candy bars.
You really can’t deny that this is the right answer. Like we just said, sometimes you need to be specific. When you sign most things, it’s always at the bottom so this kid just used common sense to answer this question.
And they didn’t have to study for this question. This test question represents the kind of school life that all students want. At least, the ones who don’t want to learn things.
We Have An Artist On Our Hands
That plant looks highly depressed that it’s been locked away. The drawing is almost as flawless as it is simple… it shows a plant inside a “cell.” Although the test was clearly asking for a different kind of cell, this one is technically correct.
The most important parts are identified as “iron bars” and “no windows.” This isn’t your ordinary smart answer, this is art in the face of pressure that deserved some credit.
After Cross Multiplying…
It would appear that after you get rid of the common factors, the answer is quite simple. So simple that even a third-grader could figure this out. We all know that six equals six so you can’t get any simpler than that now, can you? Were points given to this student?
Some people argue that we don’t really use math in our adult lives, but geometry terms actually do show up in the crossword every now and then… so you’d better learn them if you plan to be a crossword geek someday.
Do We Have A Zombie On Our Hands?
Zombies have been a huge craze for a few years now, which shows like The Walking Dead helped start, so maybe that can explain this creepy yet comical (depending on how you look at it) answer.
We know, or at least hope, that this child has not actually eaten any brains and isn’t speaking from memory but only speaking based on what he or she has heard on the TV.
She Couldn’t See!
Scientists and those students who find themselves in science classes know the real answer here, but this kid seems to have forgotten why Miranda can’t see down the microscope.
But putting down the answer “she is blind” was a pretty clever thing to try. You never know when the teacher will reward cleverness but a “nice try” comment is a decent consolation prize. Even better if it had come with a sticker.
Excuse Me, What?
This kid missed the whole intended target, and then they messed up on the geography slant they were going for with their answers. He or she didn’t even spell the states correctly.
They also clearly got their states mixed up. You can’t put all the blame on them, however. Remembering the different states of matter could be a trick, we admit, but picking the names of U.S. states is not acceptable.
When Mom Drinks Too Much
We know that person who has a relative who takes too many trips to the wine cabinet. This kid just revealed that their mom is one of those moms who likes her wine.
And it isn’t a wrong answer, it is just his truth and his answer. More power to this kid for being honest when asked a question about their life. We imagine mom not be so happy about the honesty, though.
He’s Being Honest
In 100 years, many of us might be gone. It’s not sad it is just a fact of life. We can’t avoid death and taxes. Warren seems to already be ahead of the curve by figuring this simple fact out. Maybe he shouldn’t be so grim, though.
It could scare the other kids or the teacher! No one really likes to be reminded of their own mortality. Warren probably didn’t get a good grade on this assignment.
Where is the lie? This kid must have caught the love bug early or the parents raising him or her have a very magical relationship. If you were the teacher, would you have given credit for an answer like this?
We would have! After all, it’s love we are talking about… a very positive aspect of life. This answer is a lot more positive than the one Warren just gave.
I’m Mr. Lonely
These kids just seem to be getting wittier and wittier. Nothing should prompt a kid to put this type of answer on a test unless they believed they would actually get points for being funny or for at least trying.
It also says something about the teacher if a kid is this comfortable at putting this type of answer. After all, it’s easier to learn if you feel like you can be yourself at school.
Three States That Matter Most
This kid was taught the three states of matter, the three physical forms that matter can take, and he or she really applied their new scientific knowledge to real life. This kid wasn’t entirely wrong with their answers, so let’s hope that their teacher gave them credit for that!
We all had that student in our classes while we were growing up, the one that couldn’t get enough of the fart jokes. Those kids ended up on Saturday Night Live.
A Rebel Without A Cause
This kid was asked to describe themselves in just three words, but they answered the prompt in an even better way. They decided to describe themselves as a rebel, but in doing so used not the requested three words, but four.
As a result, they didn’t actually do what the test asked them to. Which does indeed make them a rebel. We think partial credit is deserved for this one.
Bacon Is Always The Answer
Apparently, this kid wasn’t exactly able to discern the length of a day on Jupiter given the information on the rest of the test. So, they took a shot in the dark and put down the answer that they hoped would be fail-safe: bacon. Why? Because “bacon is always the answer…”
Something tells us that this kid will end up in fast food marketing someday. And they’ll be very good at it.
Cause And Effect
This child was learning the concept of cause and effect. When asked what would be the effect of Tony practicing piano every day, this kid determined that Tony is just a “big nerd.” Well, it’s obvious that the kid who answered this question considers musical talent something for the meek.
This kid will probably be a jock when they get to high school. That is, unless they realize how popular rock stars are!
Compliments Can Get You Far
This questionnaire was probably given around the beginning of the school year and Mr. Thomas wanted to make sure that his students knew the policies of his classroom. Whether or not this kid knows the real repercussions of being late, you have to admit that his earnest answer will surely put a soft spot in Mr. Thomas’s heart.
Then again, it says “comment,” not “compliment,” so we’re really not sure what’s going on.
Sometimes Brutal Honesty Is The Best Answer
This kid might not have scored any points on their test but their outlook on life is strong. We have a feeling this young child will end up living the life of a startup entrepreneur. Even if they didn’t score 100% on their test, they are destined to be a real go-getter later in life.
Maybe, we’d all be better off if we had this kid’s outlook on things. Good job kid and we give you an A+ on this assignment.
When Is The Wrong Answer The Right Answer?
We’re sort of confused by the logic in this answer, but admittedly, the student wasn’t wrong. There is no way that a football can be more than one foot long, but we’re not sure if the student answered this question knowing that information.
He still got the answer right, however, because the length of a football is indeed the length of one football. Which was exactly the joke the student was trying to make. Good job!
No One Remembers When Earth Day Is
This student was taught all about Earth Day and probably about how to take care of the Earth’s environment. Kids often give the simplest answers that first come to their mind, so when asked about what they learned, we suppose the only thing they took from that lesson was that Earth Day fell on April 22nd.
Yes, that would be useful to know in a trivia game. After all, you can win some great prizes on trivia night!
This Kid Knows Their ’80s Slang
This kid may not be well adept in algebra yet, but they sure do know how to use ’80s slang when they see the opportunity. They were asked to turn the given equation into a single “radical” expression, but the term “radical” might have thrown them for a loop so they answered in an equally radical way.
If we’re being honest, this response deserves partial credit… at least as a lesson in the history of slang!
There Is A Difference
This student was supposed to be learning simple math. Numbers are fun and when you spend a lot of time with them, you start to notice things. That is why when asked to find the difference between eight and six, this student interpreted that to distinguish the aesthetic differences between the two numbers in a hilarious way.
We have a feeling this child is more interested in the arts than in math or science.
Developing A Thick Skin
School is a trying time for a lot of kids. At the beginning of the school year, this kid was asked about what they think they can improve on. Probably bullied and made fun of for being so sensitive, this kid decided that they’ve had enough.
What they want to improve on is crying less which we wouldn’t argue with if they want to learn to stand up for themselves.
“Enough Is Enough Judy!”
Judy is quite a mischievous student, indeed. On this test, she was asked to determine how this boy felt after falling off his bike. But Judy didn’t take the obvious route and instead, she focused on the details, going so far as to add her own answer: that the boy is ugly.
Hilarious or not, you could tell that her teacher has had enough of her cheekiness by now! We wonder if she ever passed a test.
This Kid Might Need To Study Up On History A Bit
Okay, so maybe on a base level this statement is true. Some people might argue that democratic socialism is a better answer, right? In any case, this kid wasn’t exactly wrong and it would be a shame if his teacher marked them down for a rather direct answer.
Who knows, maybe this is the start a very long and productive career in politics for this kid? Only time will tell!
An Earnest Dream
This student learned all about Dr. Martin Luther King and his “I Have A Dream” speech. When asked about what their own dream was, this kid said that theirs is to work at Taco Bell alongside their mother.
It’s a sweet dream, indeed, but we’re sure that their mother hopes her child has bigger dreams beyond that. Even so, she probably wouldn’t mind working with her cute kid one day, maybe for “take your kid to work” day.
How A Kid Comes Up With The Answer
This kid could not be fooled by a seemingly complicated simple math question (which they answered correctly, by the way). But when asked to explain how they came up with the answer, instead of explaining the math they used, they gave the most kid-like response a kid could ever give: “I started out by thinking then the answer came to me.”
So basically, this student is saying that their brain gave them the answer. That seems about right!
