A Telling Mistake…

Two engineers with identical qualifications applied for the same job. To decide who to hire, the firm gave them a test. Each missed only one question. A manager called one candidate and said, “We’re going with the other applicant.”
“Why? We both got nine out of ten questions right,” said the reject.
“Our choice isn’t based on the correct answers, but on the question you both missed,” said the manager.
“How could one incorrect answer be better than the other?” the applicant inquired.
“For question number 5, the other guy put down, ‘I don’t know.’ You wrote, ‘Neither do I.”‘
