Re: Try this personality test.

Is there anything called a question tag in english grammar?

Which statement?


'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'
'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it'

'The whole person changes, why can't a habit?'


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: Try this personality test.

No! It was about a trivial habit which belonged to her.

The next surely cannot guess that habit

Re: Try this personality test.

Nope, it is something related to inks.

You still did not answer if there is anything like question tag

She chews on her pen?

Yes, she chews on her pen. This is a common habit many people want to break.

Re: Try this personality test.

Okay, I was suggesting that you start a thread if you like. Other people may not find them so mundane. You do not have to unless you want to. Also, you can change the problems, it is a great exercise and reveals a weakness in mathematics.

I think so too but it is a lot of work. Ganesh found problems for years.

Re: Try this personality test.

If I created a thread I would choose that name.

They are really mundane. Something like


'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'
'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it'

Re: Try this personality test.

I am afraid that no math like that is ever mundane. There are several ways to do that and that makes it very interesting.

What from? Or is it something he wishes to keep unknown?
