    • D.

      ...lol...

    Correct Answer
    B. Isn't there a ? after okay?
    Explanation
    The given correct answer points out that there should be a question mark after the word "okay" in the sentence. The sentence is a question, so it requires a question mark at the end to indicate that it is interrogative in nature. The absence of the question mark makes the sentence grammatically incorrect.

    • C.

      You spelled restaraunt wrong.

    Correct Answer
    A. Wouldn't your order just be a hamburger and some water?
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Wouldn't your order just be a hamburger and some water?" because the person initially asks for a cheeseburger with no cheese, which essentially means they want a hamburger. Additionally, the phrase "diet water" is nonsensical as water is already calorie-free and does not require any modification. Therefore, the correct interpretation of the person's order would be a hamburger and water.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    If 6 # 6 = 0 and 6 @ 6 = 12, then 5 # 3 @ 2 # 4 = _______?

    Correct Answer
    0, zero, Zero
    Explanation
    To find the value of "5 # 3 @ 2 # 4", let's first understand the operations represented by "#" and "@".
    Given: 6 # 6 = 0 6 @ 6 = 12
    From these statements, we can deduce that "#" represents subtraction and "@" represents addition.
    Now, let's solve "5 # 3 @ 2 # 4":
    "5 # 3" means subtracting 3 from 5, which equals 2.
    "@ 2" means adding 2 (5-3) and 2, which equals 4.

    4#4 = 0

    A woman with russet hair goes to get her hair dyed dark red. Will her hair get lighter or darker?

    • A.

      Lighter.

    • B.

      Darker.

    • C.

      It will stay the same.....?

    Correct Answer
    B. Darker.
    Explanation
    If a woman with russet hair (which is typically a reddish-brown shade) decides to dye her hair dark red, the outcome will be that her hair gets darker. Dark red dye will add more depth and darker tones compared to the lighter, more brownish-red tones of russet hair. Hence, her hair will become darker after the dyeing process.
