Best Test Question Ever

Here is a Question from the Basketball Rules test here in Michigan.


24. A5 is a sight to behold . . . He’s dressed in a legal uniform (shirt and pants) which he is wearing legally . . . But just look at the rest of him! Which of the following items may A5 wear and still be allowed to participate?

A multi-colored elastic band that extends completely around the crown of his head, with a picture of Brittany Spears attached to the front
An, earring, carefully and fully covered by the team’s doctor with athletic tape
One pink knee high sock and one lime-green knee high sock
A necklace with an attached locket which holds a picture of his girlfriend and is firmly affixed to his chest with tape
A beige compression sleeve worn on his shooting arm “because Alan Iverson used to wear one and he is my hero”

If he has a medical note for the compression sleeve, it is okay. Otherwise only the socks are okay. Would be my answer.

That's going to depend on each specific state's rules.

This is regional, but we don't ask for a note. We just ask if it's for a medical purpose, and accept the answer.

We don't ask for the note either, just ask the coaches if everyone is properly dressed. If they say yes, they are saying it is being worn for medical reasons. As long as it is white, black, beige or a single school color, and the same for each team member they are good.

He may emulate AI by wearing the beige colored compression sleeve.

Not if that's his reason.

Agreed. However, his doctor may agree, as well.

Nope. The only way you can wear one is for medical purposes.
