I am pretty certain 13 was the s1/s2, because I know for a fact I got that question wrong. I remember putting 10.9% for that one. I got question 11 right, so that can't be it.

I am in the same boat with question 14. Apparently 90% knew the answer, but not me. I am wondering if I just put it wrong into my calculator but had it right on the sheet.

Has everyone agreed that the actual answer for Q13 is C? It seems a little unsure in the PAK with only 40% of the popular vote.
