The best answer
>Non native speaker here…
I took your comment to mean that you are a non-native speaker and wanted an explanation, if that isn’t the case, disregard this response.
The joke here revolves around the interpretation of the word “defend.”
The two definitions of “Defend” that are at play here are:
1. To justify
2. To protect
The question is asking the students to defend (or justify) their answer; the test is asking students to support their answer to the previous question with facts or reasoning.
I assume the person taking the test didn’t know supporting information, so they, instead, decided to be creative and use the definition of defend that means, “to protect.” They sketched a stick figure protecting their “ANSWER” from attackers by placing what looks like razor wire around it and placing a stick man using a turret to shoot at attackers.
Thank you! :)
he may nerd yet he still better than u
why you gotta get cruel about it? everyone is just having fun,
so why u gotta say nerd then
gee I guess I should have added /s at the end to make sure ( /s ). adding /s at the end of yours would be really really silly.
Ngl, I would give him a medal.
And I’m gonna give you a medal! Gold star!
Thanks, now, somehow I need to give this kid tenfold what you did for me :)
What does tenfold mean?
Kinda like times ten :)
The good ending
A trophy would suffice
Yes, but a medal was earned
Creativity and commitment= A+
Edit: thanks for the award
A+ = gold star award!
Thank you! 😁
third line doesn't get caps, screw you
I would register him in a creative thinking class created specially for people like them.
First time I am seeing a gold award without any upvote. Thanks kind stranger for the generous gesture. 😃
I’d draw a purple heart medal and say he was still wrong but he earned this medal 😂
Wrong kind of medal too. He needs a congressional Medal of Honor
His hand writing is really good for a kid
It depends and his parents may just really care about handwriting which is reasonable
Probably an older kid considering he needs to “defend” his answer. At least at my school we didn’t get those kinda questions until later on.
Non native speaker here, isn't it "If I were the teacher"?
You are correct. Native English speakers often forget about the subjunctive mood.
Native English speakers who don’t read much
I read constantly. I have since I was three. I can get all that right if I'm writing paragraphs, but writing quickly I write like people talk.
People have been playing red dead redemption 2. Now we all say "we was riding to them bastards"
Worth an A+
I’m dead at “Sarge” 😂😂😂😂😂 A+ and valedictorian speech even if he doesn’t have a 4.0😂😂😂
SEND DUDES !
You mean nudes ?
NO I'M IN A FIGHT. I NEED MORE MENS !!
Clever little fucker. 'Defend your answer' though what's the context behind that? The immediate thought that comes to mind is my dear mother who doubles down rather than admits she was wrong. I hope they aren't teaching that in schools.
I wouldn’t grade this high if I were a teacher since the stick person is obviously not gonna last meaning that he isn’t defending it well
I bet that is the “Safest” Answer
Not where I’m used to seeing this reposted
Wait, so the answer is "answer"? What was the question?
If I got an a every time I would see this reposted, I would be a professor….
Why are so many comments getting awards in here?
A + = gold star. Would you like a gold star award?
The kid deservs the Medal of Valor
Did the soldier make it? :o
An A?! More like an A+!
why is everyone getting gold and platinum
Im pretty sure he did get an A or something close to it atleast
Deserves an A+
Worth at least a mil at Art Basel 🤔
S+ and mvp++
but the real question is, who’s trying to attack the answer?? Is it the TEACHER??
Me. His gold stars are mine.
I upvoted because I think it’s funny, not because I believe this was done by a child.
Agianst Who? The poor american education system that will tell you that you're not good enough?
Oof man, he ran outta ammo
He forgot to defend the rear.
I would draw like a helicopter, fighting the stick figure (You know like the good old stick wars on a piece of paper). And say "im sorry but it looks like you should have defended your answer a little better"
Give him at least half credit on any decent assignment. If it’s busywork then full credit all the way. Definitely gonna hold a nice rep for the kid though, A+ in thinking outside the box
There's so much too it. The way ANSWER is like this object. the wire surrounding it. the way he does a stick figures army helmet. the sand bags which go in theme with seeing the wire. its always SARGE in situations like these.
I think we all now what country the kid who answered this question if from.
A+ something a big brain guy would answer + free award
You've earned your bronze star soldier
Bonus points if they actually did the formula below this because they know their bitch ass teacher wouldn’t accept this.
Teacher: I just sent a B-52 Stratofortress to obliterate your position, you get an F for failing to put countermeasures against carpet bombing.
Don't you mean A++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Has anyone realized that this kid is referring to *The Clone Wars* TV show?
Give this kid a badge!
What's up with the OP making sheriffs out of everybody?
I’d mark him down for being a smart ass personally
who tf giving all this gold out
This kid will go far in life!!!
1. That's not you, that's a stick figure you've drawn
2. That's *an* or *the* answer, but you're supposed to defend *your* answer.
See this is where the red pen marks up a flanking maneuver from the left. He failed to account for the flank and this did not defend his answer. No credit! >.<
Nah that deserves an A+ for being creative and for making my...night I guess
Definitely deserves an A+
“THEIR ALL OVER ME, OH GOD THEIR EVERYWHERE”
I'll give it a C+. Needs a stronger defense
