    Harry: Airlines have made it possible for anyone to
    travel around the world in much less time than
    was formerly possible.
    Judith: That is not true. Many flights are too expensive
    for all but the rich.
    Judith’s response shows that she interprets Harry’s
    statement to imply that

    (A) the majority of people are rich

    (B) everyone has an equal right to experience world
    travel

    (C) world travel is only possible via routes serviced
    by airlines

    (D) most forms of world travel are not affordable
    for most people

    (E) anyone can travel

    What's with the reading comprehension tests? Sounds like the PISA study*

    *which, by the way, showed that the kids in my country have pretty bad reading skills.

    Agreed.

    But relax, he is kidding.

    Counter question to Jonnyboy: is there always at least one prime number between n2 and (n + 1)2 ?
    (n being a natural number)

    There is not. Consider the specific case of n=4. In this case, our range (2n, 2n+2) is defined by (8, 10). Since the only whole number to fall within that range is 9, and since 9 is not a prime number, there is not always at least a prime number between 2n and 2n+2.

    Did you mean n^2 and (n+1)^2?

    It's n squared, not two n! Sorry if that wasn't readable.
    So in your example of n=4 we would have a range from 16 to 25, that gives us even three prime numbers: 17, 19 and 23!

    It's Legendre's conjecture. I was just kidding because you (jokingly, I assume) threw the twin prime thing at us which according to a quick research is one of the remaining mysteries of number theory.
