An actual question from a State Water Quality test:

"The word tundra is derived from what Finnish verb?

On a water quality test. Were they trying to determine if anyone was using the internet?

Nothing else makes any sense for that question to be there...
Someone must've gotten their Water Quality folder mixed up with an Ecology test from 4 years ago. Absurd.

I would assume that question would almost definitely be for checking for googling. Unless they mixed it up as you said, I wouldn't have any clue why that would be there. (After all, this year is about coral reefs which is on a way different latitude)

Some completely useless trivia, since this piqued my interest and made me google it: the word tundra is not derived from a verb, but rather a noun, and despite some sources saying it is Finnish, a fair number of other sources online say it's from Russian, passed down from Kildin Sami (which might be related to Finnish, but those sources don't explicitly mention that).
But yeah, shouldn't have been on a WQ test, and I'd assume it was a mix-up. Hope it doesn't affect your scores much; I doubt anyone would know that off the top of their head, and anyone who tried to google it would become very confused anyway...

Anyone know what will replace this year's Water Quality: Marine and Estuary Ecology, Coral Reef Macroflora and Fauna & Water Monitoring and Analysis?

I heard a rumour that Green Generation was scheduled...
