Answer the question
The answer to the question, ‘Who won the FA Cup in 2006?’ is not, and will never be, ‘My mum.’ ‘My mum’ may well be an answer, but it is an answer to a completely different question. (‘Who buys all your clothes?’)
Make sure you answer the question in front of you, not some other question you’ve made up, because that question is asking you for things you know. Do this by underlining three key words per question and checking with yourself that you know – exactly - what is being asked for.
