RE: Rec Adult

Ishan reddy of Sydney, NSW Australia asks...

Qt. The following items summarise your powers and duties as a referee.

You need to select those that are listed in this Law.

1) Act on the advice of the AR regarding incidents you have not seen
2) Suspend or terminate the match because of outside interference
3) Stop the match to allow treatment of a player you believe to be seriously injured
4) Dismiss an AR for undue interference or improper conduct
5) Provide authorities with appropriate reports
6) Decide the result of a match by the toss of a coin

I believe the answer should be 1,2,3,4,5 but it's showing as incorrect. I have completed all the other modules except this one. I'm stumped- can't seem to work this one out.

Answer provided by Referee Joe McHugh

Hi Ishan
Your answer is correct. Interestingly this was asked before in question 32261 so you are not alone.
It could simply be a technical error on the site? On the last question it was a,b,c,d,e,f. ?
I also doubt it is a trick question as that is not the form in refereeing questions. But if it was splitting hairs for instance Laws 5 on Q1 states match officials, Q2 reads stops, suspends or abandons the match Q4 says relieve rather than dismiss
I think it is more likely a technical problem with the site and best to contact the site administrators
Maybe someone else has solved the problem
