In The Quintessential Quintuplets, when taking her mid-term exam, Yotsuba doesn't know the answer to a question, so she uses a policy to guess the answer.
I think this policy is a meme among students in Japan. In fact, in where I live, students also have similar policies. The most famous two might be:
- Choose the evidently different option. If one of the options is ridiculously simple/complicated/short/long compared to the others, then it's probably the correct one.
- If 1 doesn't work, the most probable answer is the 2nd last option, the 2nd most probable answer is the 1st option.
Of course, 2 may vary slightly across the country.
What are some famous policies for students to guess the correct answer in a test in Japan?
