Singapore is an English-speaking country, so most of us pride ourselves on being able to speak English better than most Asian countries.
But can you speak English better than a Korean student sitting for the college entrance exam? While we can’t exactly say that, we can say that their English questions are mind-blogging even for us.
A British YouTuber, who is currently studying at Cambridge, recently posted a video in which she tried to answer three English questions found in a sample college entrance exam paper.
And, mind you, we were as baffled by the questions as she was. Whoever who set the question seemed to be trying to use every bombastic English word he or she knows, which results in a whole body of text that beats around the bush and is probably more complicated than any literature Shakespeare had written.
Don’t believe us? Try answering these questions.

Or if you’re too lazy to watch the video, the answers are 5, 3 and 2 respectively (click to highlight).
