In trial this week, my esteemed opponent asked the following question of one of his witnesses:

"Q. How many children do you have approximately?"

What was expecting, an answer of "2 or 3, around 3, or 2.5 children"?


The answer must be a whole number, a positive integer, and it must be precise. There is no "approximately."
