Issue 4: Are You Smarter Than Your High Schooler?
Welcome back to another edition of Are You Smarter Than Your High Schooler, a weekly chance for parents to feel like a teenager again without having to post on Snapchat or play Fortnite.
In this week’s issue, three questions that resemble what high schoolers could see on this week’s ACT.
Standard disclaimer: no specific rule or formula is needed to solve the Math question, calculators are allowed, you need only fix the two English questions but not name the errors, and none of the three questions would be considered easy. Remember, most English questions don’t come with an actual “question”: just an underlined portion followed by three options. Determine whether it’s correct as written (NO CHANGE) or pick the choice that fixes the error.
Do your best, and read on for the answers and explanations.
