Walker: 1. Why did the animals eat the pineapple?a. they were annoyedb. they were amusedc. they were hungryd. they wanted toHOW CAN I READ ANIMAL'S MINDS??? QUESTION IS INVALID!
SphericalTime: Actually, if the question was to determine writing skills rather than reading comprehension, I can see where putting an unclear situation like this in print might lead to more complicated answers from students. They want the kids to defend their position even though there isn't a clear-cut answer.However, I suspect that this question was really supposed to be about reading comprehension and Ken Jennings is correct and someone wrote it during a Peyote trip.
angrycrank: But teachers who object to these standardised tests as a way to evaluate their performance are just a bunch of lazy overpaid union thugs, amirite? And those snowflakes should stop whining, get off my lawn, and gbtw./the hare was the wisest. He avoided all the crap philosophising and just ran the damn race./they ate the pineapple because they wanted to, duh.
Rent Party: The obvious answer is d. They wanted to. All the other answers presume some motivation on the animals part that can not be known. The only confirmed fact we have in evidence is that they did, in fact, eat the pineapple, and therefore must have wanted to.

The only confirmed fact we have in evidence is that they did, in fact, eat the pineapple, and therefore must have wanted to.No, not true. They could have tripped and fallen on the fruit, which is the most common cause of a pineapple ending up inside somebody.
Fano: 2. How is a raven like a writing desk?
howdyyall9999: It's a psychological question not an intelligence question. Probably just pulled out of the wrong list and stuck on the test
koder: There isn't a right answer, obviously; they're open-ended questions that leave the test-taker to answer any way they want--as long as it's grammatically/stylistically correct.
