NFHS Question

This is a question on the 2019 NFHS basketball test part 1. Does anyone know what they are asking?

All of the following describe general duties of any game official, EXCEPT:
Administer penalties.
Grant time-outs.
Put the ball in play.
Beckon substitutes to enter the court.
All of the above.

Badly written. We do all of the items. None are an exception to the general duties. "E" should be None of the above. because none of the others are correct, I'd choose "E" since I'm sure that is what was intended.

Let's Go To The Videotape ...

2-7 Officials’ General Duties
The officials shall conduct the game in accordance with the rules. This
includes:
ART. 1 Notifying the captains when play is about to begin at the start of
the game.
ART. 2 Putting the ball in play.
ART. 3 Determining when the ball becomes dead and live.
ART. 4 Prohibiting practice during a dead ball, except between halves.
ART. 5 Administering penalties.
ART. 6 Granting and charging time-out.
ART. 7 Beckoning substitutes to enter the court.
ART. 8 Signaling a three-point attempt and signaling a successful threepoint
goal.
ART. 9 Silently and visibly counting seconds to administer the throwin
(7-6), free-throw (8-4; 9-1-3a), backcourt (9-8) and closely-guarded (9-
10) rules.
ART. 10 Reporting a team warning for delay to the official scorer and
then to the head coach.
ART. 11 Reporting a team warning for head coach/bench personnel
misconduct to the official and then to the head coach.
ART. 12 Notifying the head coach when a team is granted its final
allowable time-out.


Note: IAABO mechanics no longer have us doing Article 1 (notifying the captains when play is about to begin at the start of the game). We just tell everybody that we're ready to go an it's off to the races. No real need to identify a speaking captain, or a starting captain, or asking for numbers under a warm-up jersey, and remembering said numbers. If a player asks for a defensive matchup (3-3-1-E), I'll just assume it's a captain.

It's a definitely badly written question. I had this question on my exam. After conversing with a couple of colleagues, I answered E. It was marked correct.

D (beckon substitutes to enter the court) is definitively incorrect, beckon substitutes to enter the court is clearly stated as a General Duty in 2-7-1-7.

My bad. I committed a typo. I actually answered E - all of above.

I was told that the answer is E all of the above because the official scorer is considered an Officials and these are not his/her duties.

That's pushing the envelope. 2-7 is actually titled "Officials’ General Duties".

You actually typed this incorrectly. Here is how it appears on the NFHS exam:

Question 17:
All of the following describe general duties of any game official, EXCEPT:
a.
Administer penalties.
b.
Grant time-outs.
c.
Put the ball in play.
d.
Beckon substitutes to enter the court.
e.
None of the above.

Explanation

2-3, 2-7

The answer is e, but the word choice is poor.

Actually in his exam, it probably isn't a typo. On my exam, answer E for this question is "all of the above".
But, I agree with you. It's a terribly written question.
