I can see why these questions are so ridiculously easy. No one wants a complete moron in this trade. These questions filter out these people the quickest way. You know these people? The ones that cant count up to six without taking their socks off.
The half morons that do get through the ECS then have to work out how to read a book properly.
Now we're getting to the people that are really dangerous. The ones that don't know their morons.
They don't know. Not until they come on here and ask a silly question.
Then someone enlightens them with the cold hard facts

When I did mine I saw a guy just across the room sit down and literally 5 minutes later he stood up and left. I was amazed and overcome with respect for such an intellect, until I realised that I could see his screen from where I sat and it was clearly still at the initial login screen.
Perhaps he forgot how to spell his own name? :confused:
