Radio presenter Mwalimu Rachel has excited the online community after sharing a video showing a puzzling assignment given to her son in school.
The video captures the mother of one explaining to her son how she may not be able to help him since the homework required his son to read the word written and draw the object.
But what captured the interest of netizens were some of the things the child was asked to draw. Among the things listed on the homework for him to draw was a ring, king, wing, swing, and sling.

The list also included sing, oblong and lungs which left Mwalimu Rachel clueless on how to draw the listed items.
"Homework problems! Fellow mothers! Fathers!! HELP!!! How do we draw some of these things!! I can't draw," wrote Mwalimu Rachel.
In another post the radio host shared a drawing of the Ogopa Deejays logo with music chords to give the impression of a singing person.
