True/False Questions

True/False questions are different, in that in most instances, only one set of feedback needs to be written which will work for both a true and a false selection. You can, of course, provide different explanations for each answer choice (one for a true answer and one for a false answer). We will begin each set of feedback with whether it’s true or false, then add the explanation you provide.

The important pieces of information we need from you are:

1. The question being presented;

2. Whether the answer is True or False; and

3. The feedback explanation.


Example of how you could present the text to us:

True or false: The court in Davison believed it did not have the authority to decide whether a municipality could be liable for negligence maintenance of bridges.

False: Contrary to the question’s prompt, the Davison court had the authority and exercised it when it reversed the lower court’s ruling with directions to dismiss the action. In so doing, it relied in part on the Michigan state precedent, Perkins v. Delaware Township, which held as a matter of law that the maintenance of a bridge without any railings at all on one side was not negligence. Its reference to deciding the issue “as a matter of law” shows that it believed it was empowered to decide the question, as the Perkins court did, without remanding to a jury to explore the facts.
