Lockdown Light – LOOKING ON THE BRIGHT SIDE

We begin with Mr Terry, everyone’s favourite male Year 11 housemaster… he says:

The one and only benefit of lockdown and this whole nightmare is the fact that I now know that these data are confusing and misleading rather than this data!!! Even though it is not in the mark scheme I am automatically deducting a mark from my Economists’ answers if they do not treat data as plural – apparently if you treat data as an uncountable mass noun then ‘this data’ is acceptable, however, being an Economist I don’t know what an uncountable mass noun is! If Jason Sims decides to explain it to me I will reverse my new marking structure!
