Language and Math, first one

This is a simple test question for grade 1 math:

6. Choose the equation which answers the question:
What number added to 7 is equal to 9?

a. 7-5=2
b. 7+9=16
c. 9-7=2
d. 9+7=16

Well, I’ve been involved with math for too long, obviously, as I genuinely thought that the only number equal to 9 was 9 itself.

If you got the answer (c), you didn’t read the question!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
