    Meaning

    I give him nought out of ten for sums.

    Does the words in type mean ten minus nought? Pls.

    No, it means that he scored zero out of ten, in other words he got them all wrong.

    Re: Meaning

    Puzzle, please give your threads meaningful titles, such as Nought out of ten.

    It's very tedious to keep seeing Meaning. We don't know which of your questions you're referring to.
