It seems the "taxpayer" and "student" are not properly stated in those questions in Part IV of the AOTC WKS. Also, the solutions or results suggested to the "yes" and "no" answers are providing the wrong action to be taken. Also, some of the questions are duplicate and most are poorly written, such as "Is the taxpayer 18? Yes or No" Are you asking if they are exactly age 18 or are you asking if they are at least 18? The way it is written, No would be correct if they were 17 or 35. Also, I think the question revolves around the student's age, not the taxpayer. However, sometimes the student and the taxpayer are one in the same ... still it is the student's age that matters in this case - but the question asks about the taxpayers. Please think these questions through more clearly.
