Is the following sentence true or false?
To decide wheather a measurement has good precision or poor precision, the measurement must be made more than once.

thanks in advance

True. I hate T/F statements that have "must be". Life is full of exceptions to always, and must be. But the statement above is more true than false, because of the "must be" statement.
