Bond Books "Verbal Reasoning 10-Minute Tests 10-11+"
Test 6 Q18
Find the missing number by using the two numbers outside the brackets in the same way as the other sets of numbers

5 [10] 4 
3 [14] 8 
2 [ ] 6

+Gilbert Sayers solution: multiple the outer two numbers by each other then subtract 10. This gives the missing number as 2

The answer in the book is 4.

Is it a misprint or is he wrong?
I can't see a way of getting to 4.

We use a Google Font called Oxygen by +vernon adams in our app +Xenapto, but I've noticed that at large sizes it renders a bit strangely on Windows.

The effect in the picture can be seen in Chrome and Firefox if you just look at the font in https://www.google.com/fonts

The disturbing thing to my eye is the lower baseline of the c and the t compared to the other letters, and the c height is also greater than you'd expect.

I don't know whether this is a font problem, a Windows problem or a browser problem. I just know it's a bit ugly and it's going to be time-consuming to change the font now.
