So I'm reading chapter 1.1 of Elementary Linear Algebra by Anton and there's this true-false question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

"A linear system whose equations are all homogenous must have a unique solution."

Taking this question simply as it is I think the answer should be false, because while there's always the trivial solution, it's also possible for there to be infinite solutions. Yet the book gives the answer as True? I think it's pretty confusing and doesn't give the student confidence when the very first question has the wrong answer.
