Absolutely horrible. One example will suffice:A man was drinking a cup of tea when he was suddenly blinded. How?Now, MY answer to that would be that the steam from the tea fogged his glasses and temporarily blinded him. A bit obvious, but fair, and lateral.No. The correct answer is "He had left his teaspoon in his cup of tea. When he raised the cup to drink, the teaspoon poked him in the eye, temporarily blinding him.".FAIL.
