Mental Exercise

Just think about the question below. I got it from a student presentation in one of my classes, and it seemed like I was the only one who noticed anything wrong.

"True or False: Does Manuel Quezon have Chinese blood?"

e first ancestor he was able to trace, was a chinese baptized in the parian. photographs of lucio quezon, mlq's father, show he was obviously a chinese mestizo. mlq himself said whatever spanish blood he had came from his mother.

thank you, sir, for the information.

i believe the student group got that aspect down correctly.

was actually questioning the statement on the grammatical front.

(hehe.)

i thought the question was more a yes/no question than a true/false.

does manuel quezon have chinese blood? yes.

true or false: manuel quezon has chinese blood. true.

quite nerdy of me, really, to notice such things. :)
