I was getting my AS chemistry paper remarked and one of the sentence in a long answer turned out to be very ambiguous in terms of my interpretation.
Okay so for example, if i have this sentence:
"I have a big eyes, ear, nose and a small mouth"
Then would you consider my eyes to be big only just because I didn't put "big" infront of "ear" and "nose"? I was clearly talking about my big eyes, big ear, and big nose... (hehe)
I wrote this kind of sentence in my chemistry exam, about ionisation energy. The examiner won't accept my answer because I didn't write "bigger" for each words!

you're examiner is retarded. that makes perfect sense because you wrote 'small mouth' which therefore means you assume that the adjective 'big' went with the other two! besides, i don't know whether this applies to your actual answer or not, but who on earth just writes 'ears, nose' in a sentence with no adjective?? random?!
