Today I gave a mid-term exam to Pre-Technology Students. Question # 26 reads as follows:
26. You have before you a piece of tissue, and you are about to drop it into a HYPERTONIC solution. Will the tissue gain water, lose water, or remain the same? Explain. (3 marks)
During the course of the exam, one young lady held up her hand. I came over, and she asked,
"Do you mean like Kleenex or something?"
Some days I can't win.
