Please, I need help.

In a particular reading test about ancient Egypt, in True/False/NG section, I was confused with this specific question. The question is....

The surface of the Great Pyramid is covered in polished limestone slabs.

My given answer was True but The right answer is False. However, I could not get it clearly.

1. The pyramid covers 13 acres and contains 2,300,000 blocks of limestone, each weighing an average of 1.5 tons.

2. Originally the exterior was covered in highly polished limestone slabs, all of which have been stolen over the years

Dear Akter,

As far as I'm concerned, it's a little bit of a tense trick here.

According to #2, the Great Pyramid WAS covered in polished limestone slabs ALL of which have been STOLEN. In other words, there used to be polished limestone slabs on it but there are no polished limestone slabs left today.

However, the question goes "The surface of the Great Pyramid IS covered in polished limestone slabs." (present tense), so it's clearly false.

Hope it helps!

Thanks, Dear Thien Y

I am really be benefitted and it undoubtedly helped me a lot.

I could not get the tricky device which they used in the content. I just the sentences and easily got the false answer!!!.
