    You know Tim the Terrible of Sweden was buried with a statue of his pet rabbit, I don't think houseplants are too difficult to statuate/instatufy/enstatute/?
    My question was more along the lines of why would you want a statue of a houseplant rather than how would you make one XD.

    Does anyone know the thresholds from years prior to 2014?

    I would just use last years as a guideline, they never seem to fluctuate too much each year.

    The fact that it refers to lines rather than line segments is what makes the question and corresponding answer actually correct, but I don't think most people sitting the SMC are going to make that distinction.
    (at least I think this is the case; are we not still assuming infinite paper)



    It depends on the assumption. Like at GCSE you'd have questions like "it takes 2 men 5 hours to make a statue of a houseplant, how long does it take 5 men" or some bull like that. You technically have to assume the men work at the same rate and independently but nobody's going to think about that.



    Indeed. If I was a year younger this would have probably screwed me in the exam. Reminds me of last year where I got stressed out by a question on "sharing" boundaries or something; sharing meant sharing an entire boundary but I wasn't sure whether to interpret it as such or interpret it as sharing part of a boundary, after that I completely flopped the paper lol
    I was wrong, I retract my statement completely, I misread the question after trying to read into it too much, classic
