We always say that ‘numbers don’t lie’ and almost everytime, it’s true. Like Messi and Ronaldo, Messi is a playmaker but we say Ronaldo’s numbers can’t be ignored. We say what’s a better brand Apple or Android. Android is a GOAT but Apple’s numbers don’t lie and etc, etc.
But sometimes, it doesn’t be the case. When a boy who’s good at sports, arts, some other activities but don’t get a higher percentage of marks in exams, he’s said to be inferior than a boy who spends or in my opinion ‘wastes’ most of the time in coaching, tutions and school to get a good mark at the end of the session.
