The question was "When it's a designated spot throw-in, the spot is closest to the violation."

The question isn't asking if it's a "Designated Spot Throw", its just saying the spot where the ball will be inbounded for the following is closest to where it took place. Isn't it?

I must be wearing orthopedic shoes, because I stand corrected....

I am now in full agreement that this is a very poorly worded question!

Sometimes you have to wonder about the people writing the NFHS tests.Here at least in volleyball and I would assume the same holds true in basketball the exam is poured over with a fine tooth comb and edited.If a question cannot be edited to the point where it is a fair question the answer is given to the group as a free question.Most years there are about 4/5
