in reply to A Perl aptitude test

Well, the user can test the code before answer it?

The first question is trick. First doesn't make sence write it, since why add 3 to the 1 returned of the print if you aren't catching the print return?

And you should write:

print ((2*3)+3) ; # if you want to print 9 # or... $ret = (print(2*3)) + 3 ;
I think that you can skeep this question, since you are testing a code that doesn't make sence! There's much better things that you can test. Like ask to make a simple OO module, make a tie object, and use DBI.

The other questions are fine.

    Actually, I quite like Q1 and find it appropriate. I ran across this behaviour multiple times as a beginner and it was not until I had a firmer grasp of the language that I understood exactly where and why I need to disambiguate things. TheDamian has the better suggestion on what to do about that question.
