Half-listening to the radio yesterday I heard something that sounded very odd to me. I've been wondering about it ever since so I think it's time to seek the views of the experts. Suppose you and your friends have just completed a written test and it has been marked. You want to know how everyone else did in the test. Which of the following would you ask: 1. How many questions did you get wrong? 2. How many answers did you get wrong? The person on the radio said (2). I would have said (1).
