Crazy Chinese Test questions


Not my class but thought this photo was pretty hilarious, and a little disturbing, reblogging from thirawr on tumblr

How would you have translated? What do you think of the teacher? Good because it's memorable or is this a little too much?

The third sentence, we'd better translate it as " 这家公司的老板被谋杀了 zhè jiā gōng sī de lǎo bǎn bèi móu shā le" or "这家公司的老板被害死了 zhè jiā gōng sī de lǎo bǎn bèi hài sǐ le".
