New York mom Royce Winnick posted a photo of her 5-year-old daughter’s take-home worksheet. The assignment focuses on the letter T and includes a section in which the student must “tap out the word in the picture and write out the sounds you hear.” 

The first three words are simple enough: tub, ten and top. But the last one, which has a drawing of five rabbits, had Winnick’s daughter (and adult family and friends) at a loss.

“I posted the homework because we honestly could not figure out the answer,” Winnick told The Huffington Post. The mom shared a photo of the sheet on Facebook and posed the question, “Anybody know this answer to my daughter’s kindergarten homework?”

  Parents asked to pay for textbooks due to school funding gaps, poll finds Parents are being asked to pay for textbooks, art materials and to buy tickets for school plays and sports events, as schools attempt to plug funding gaps, a survey suggests. It also indicates around one in six are asking mums and dads for cash to help with the running of their child's school.One teacher told teaching unions that pupils were being asked to take photos of homework on their phones in order to save money, while another said they had to cancel a gymnastics lesson as the hall was being leased out.

Yet another test questions stumps the brilliant minds of parents just trying to help out. Yet another homework assignment intended for elementary school students has been stumping parents across the U.K.

Suggestions poured in for “twins,” “two by two,” “thumpers,” “twabbit” and “I bet this was an error.”

Though Winnick’s daughter initially thought the answer was rabbit, she eventually settled on “pet,” which the teacher marked as “OK” though it was clearly not the correct answer.

“The real answer was ‘vet’ which makes no sense!” Winnick told HuffPost.

The mom said her daughter’s homework is not usually so confounding. “But she did have another sheet similar that also had ridiculous answers,” she added.

Winnick shared the other worksheet with HuffPost. “The answers to the two bottoms ones are kin and Ken!” she said. “Again, how is a 5-year-old supposed to know that?”

Good luck getting into college, kiddos.
