Knowing the Answers is the Point of a Test

Tween girl #1: So did you pick London for question #7?
Tween girl #2: Yeah, I think so. I think I did really well.
Tween girl #1: Yeah, me too. I just hope we don’t have to take the test again.
Tween girl #2: Why would we have to take it again?
Tween girl #1: Well, if they get three or more lawsuits, they have to give everybody the test again.
Tween girl #2: But if they give it again, won’t we know the answers? Are you saying they give us the 8th grade test?
Tween girl #1: No, they give us the 7th grade test.
Tween girl #2: So won’t everyone know the answers?
Tween girl #1: No, I think they give us next year’s 7th grade test, so we wouldn’t know the answers. –1 train Overheard by: Starbuck Venice
