A mnemonic is fine. Assuming that an eighth-grader will give you the answer you expect for a question like that is ludicrous.

Yeah, they're postulating a remarkably genteel exchange.

"Now, Jimmy, can you run while seated?"
"No, ma'am, I cannot."
"Indeed not. You must first rise before you can run."

True. Darn kids

Maybe it was intended to be used in a rhetorical fashion: "Now, can you run before you've gotten out of - risen - from your chair? Of course not. Therefore . . . " *background sounds of smartass answers to the rhetorical question*
