A high school play, “The Perfect Idiot,” deals with an extremely bright senior who misses all 100 items on a true-false test.
How’d he manage that? Statistical probability dictates that anyone who simply checks off every answer as “true” or every one as “false” is bound to score around 50 percent. In order to earn a perfect zero (or perfect hundred), the student obviously needs to know all the answers.
But does anybody have all the answers? Or, perhaps more appropriately, “Does anyone even know the questions?”
