I was faced with an interesting question today. I had to complete an English proficiency test for something. In my case this obviously was just a formality, but since this was procedure at this particular place I had to take the test anyway. It was a multiple-choice test where you had to choose the grammatically correct answer from three options. There was one question, however, to which I could not give a correct answer, because the three options that were given were all incorrect. So I started to wonder: should I or should I not point this out to the people who were giving the test. I decided to not tell them (I don’t know who had made the test and it might have been slightly embarrassing), but to point it out on my answer sheet. I don’t know if they’ll take note of it or if they will just mark my alternative answer as an incorrect answer, considering me an arrogant foreigner or something like that. In the end I don’t think it will matter much anyway….
