Recently I attended a test I had been sent to through jobcenter+ which involved a very simplistic spelling and grammar test, some of which isn’t so simple considering google chrome is utterly useless and underlines everything spelled correctly in english(UK) and insists on correcting it to american spelling which isn’t correct here, so lately I’ve given up even bothering to spell correctly, some things come out american some things come out english and as everything get’s underlined when it’s correct and even if your computer and browser are set to english (uk) it gets corrected to american regardless.
This isn’t the point however, I passed the grammar and spelling test regardless of the uncertainty injected by google chrome messing up my spelling to american in many instances, the true test came in the form of a paradoxical question, where you are asked through multiple choice to fill in the blank spaces, most had one obvious answer however there was one question with a needless additional factor which changed the context of what you were asked.
“Sue’s alarm did not function. She had to be _______ for her job interview”
“late, damage, Holder, Early”
I don’t remember the inconsequential blanks, they were as stupid as that however, one’s that clearly could not make sense in any form of sentence to someone who spoke the language, and this persisted throughout the test, one obvious answer and three others which clearly had been picked at random from a dictionary and could never fit into context unless you had never spoken the language.
This question however seemed to have been made either as a paradox to deliberately identify any artificial intelligence completing the exam, because clearly we all know artificial intelligences cannot deal with paradoxes and would crash under the contradiction, and this was a contradictory question, her alarm did not function how could she possibly have made it to her job interview on time, she had to be late… And in the other context, her alarm did not function, this was no excuse as she had to be early for her job interview.
Clearly this was designed and added by the jobcenter as a question to say there are no excuses to be late for your job interview you have to be early no matter what, even if your alarm does not function you have to ensure you get there on time even if you sleep past the time you’re supposed to wake up they won’t accept that as a response, and clearly it’s the silliest question in the world to add, as if they removed the “alarm did not function” part then 100% every time she had to be early for her job interview, but adding the factor of the alarm not functioning, it does produce two concepts which are impossible to rectify, she had to be late because her alarm did not function she could not have possibly made it there on time as a result, but of course she would want to be early for her job interview to set a good impression and compose herself upon arrival, but her alarm did not function…*break*
