Taylor Swift is having a little difficulty with a practice question a fan came across while studying a Princeton Review SAT prep book.

The singer took to Tumblr on Monday to re-blog the question posted by the fan:

The book’s answer is presumably that the indefinite pronoun “somebody” is always singular. So (despite gender issues) the lyric to the 2009 hit “Fifteen” should read: Somebody tells you s/he loves you, you got to believe him/her.

But Swift and her fans seem to have spotted a different error relating to accuracy — this is the SAT writing section, after all — that complicates the question. As it turns out, the lyric that appears in the book is slightly incorrect. The correct lyric, if you listen to the song, is: Somebody tells you they love you, you’re gonna believe them.

“Not the right lyrics at all pssshhhh,” the singer wrote on her Tumblr. “You had one job, test people. One job.”
