This student's answer to this simple question has delighted internet users.

And left them questioning what the correct answer is.

A screenshot of the handwritten response has been posted on Imgur and Reddit and reads: 

"Of course I know the capital of Canada. It's a great country. It's really great. 

"Everyone wants to know what the capital of Canada is. And you know what I tell them?

"I tell them that we have a foolproof plan for naming the capital of Canada. And that's why we are going to be the best at naming the capital of Canada.


"That's an awful lot of lines just to write in 'Ottawa',"  one user wrote.

"Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, North America, Earth, Solar System, Solar Interstellar Neighbourhood, Milky Way, Local Galactic Group, Virgo Supercluster, Local Superclusters, Observable Universe. You have to narrow it down. They don't just give bonuses away," another replied.

"You obviously do not know what the capital of Canada is," said another.

"The question asks for capital not the capitol," a commenter responded.

"In case anybody was curious, the capital of Canada is 'C'," wrote another.
