Math questions on race, religion, sex, or local politics set by a teacher in multiracial Singapore that would likely get him fined, fired, or even flogged.
Some taboo math questions whose answers have yet to be officially confirmed are:
a) There is an inverse relationship between regulated prostitution in Singapore and the demand for mistresses (or "second wives").
b) The number of Muslim Singaporeans converting to Christianity has been on the rise in the last decade.
c) The rate of extramarital affairs among the different races in Singapore is highest among the Malays or Muslims.
