Question 28 on the geometry exam names two secant lines. However, nothing in the question states that points K, L, M and N are on the circle. We had some students who drew the diagram and put the points either inside or outside of the circle. This made the question impossible to answer. We called NYSED and were told that only one other school had called about the question. The representative said they were unwilling to change the scoring for now. Thoughts?
