    True or False

    I would like to know why this answer is False.

    "There are currently 73 million people around the world aged 15-24 who want to find a job".

    a)There is a total of 73 million people in the world without a job. T/F

    Thank you

    Re: True or False

    The original sentence says that the 73 million are aged between 15 and 24. a) doesn't say that.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    Re: True or False

    Also, the first one does not tell us how many people there are in the world who are without a job.

    Re: True or False

    And a) does not exclude those who have no job and are not looking for one.
