Precisely!
This is the type of DEGENERATION of teaching physics that has become prevalent.

On the surface level, the questions seem to show that the students have MORE knowledge than students of previous generations, whereas in reality, the questions posed are too difficult to answer, so that the "correct" answer is to regurgitate the passage about it in the textbook.

All across the Western world, students' incompetence at elementary maths, say algebra is noted; rather than do anything about THAT, exams are made into giving credit hand-wavy, superficially "deep" answers.
When was it done well?
