hilariously bad questions from a home school exam

Trust me when I say this isn't me poking fun at home school. There are many good homeschooling curricula out there; this just ins't one of them. Basically, these are the questions pupils use after working through the unit to show they've mastered it and be evaluated.

ETA: Skip the commentary if you like. That is anti-homeschooling, and is a serious topic for another day. I mainly found the questions LOL-worthy bad.

ETA #2: On rereading this post, I see I may have given a bad impression of the original post. It's not really anti-homeschooling so much as (rightly!) frustrated with what I agree is a bad curriculum. I want to talk more about ACE and some of the concerns raised in this post and by Azalais in the comments - when I find the time. Most likely after the holidays. In any case, if you're interested in this topic, the comments at this blog post, both before and after the actual test questions, are actually very much worth reading. I didn't mean to imply they were of no consequence; rather, they're very much worth talking about but I don't have the time right now to do it properly right now. In any event, I didn't mean to misrepresent the original post in any way.
