Is anyone having trouble understanding the form 8615 question?

Level 2

I am having trouble understanding the question on Form 8615:  Was the child either 18 years old or a full-time student age 19 to 23 with investment income more than $2100 and their earned income did not exceed one-half of their support? 

The client is a full-time student 22 years old. There is no investment income.  the client's earned income did not exceed one-half of their support.  I may be reading too much into this question.  Can I get some clarification?

I've always felt it was an oddly worded question as well.   Mark the box NO to make it go away...it shouldn't be required if no unearned income, not sure why its popping up for everyone between the ages of 19 and 23.
