Weight of coins
Do you often bring a weighing scale to examination halls for your maths exam?
If not, then you can forget about answering this next one.
How heavy are eight $1 Singapore coins? Six grams, 60g, 600g or 6kg?
That was the question that appeared in the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) mathematics paper on 2015.
Right off the bat, you can eliminate 6kg and 6g.
But between 61g and 600g? Those sound kinda close.
Naturally, some parents get upset because they feel that the students are tested unfairly.
A Facebook user by the name of Gordon Lim came forward with his opinions on the matter.
I chose 600g when I first saw this question.
I lack common sense after all.
