Do you know the answer to the question that has confounded everyone?
Question 38 on a Sheridan College (Oakville campus) sound recording exam for film class asks “What is a Microphone?”
Students were allowed to choose one of the following answers: TRUE or FALSE!
Here’s an image of the question as posted on Reddit:
Film studies professor David Gray, the one who created the exam, claims that the question is part of a “running joke” from the course, designed to force his students to think, instead of admitting that he made a mistake.
“Trying to break them out of the high school mentality of regurgitation, I wanted to get them to think more openly, so I started putting these funny questions on their quizzes and exams for bonus marks,” Gray told the Toronto Star HERE.
He stated that there was no wrong way to answer the question.
