Had a hilarious laugh reading the answers. Student would have failed going by conventional standards but he is a valuable asset if a boss is wise enough to hire him to tap into his unique way of thinking. Certainly such a person cannot last in govt jobs or large corpserations where yesmen/yeswomen & conformity run rampant.

So many of us go through the 'school factory' where we are taught & trained to think & answer in a certain way so that the factory can spit out 'moulded' student products as easily replaceable cogs in the economic machine.
