I remember you saying something about how, at least should be replaced for exactly. Now if you just remove exactly. That validates number nine doesnt it? But if you replace it with "at least" it seems that 9 of the 10 are true, and the tenth false. Hmm

Ps. Ravi, I was originally thinking this way, but then I thought of a problem in logic once with the invalidation of a question due to lack of rule. But I get what you mean.
