But the question asks which of the numbers is NOT prime, and three out of the four are not. And 49 is given as the correct answer.

right. 17, 23, and 97 are prime numbers. 49 is not a prime number (7x7). the question asks which is not prime. the correct answer is 49.

"Which age is the highest to be eligible to vote for a government?"

Possible answers are 18, 20, 21, 30

The question is not very precise and might get outdated. I guess we are talking about the highest MINIMUM age to be eligible to vote in any country. Are you eligible to vote when age 70? Clearly higher than any of the options listed

How old was Moses when he freed the Israelites from Egypt?

18
27
40
80

Correct answer should be 80, not 40.

When Moses was 40 years old, he killed an Egyptian who was beating a Hebrew. Then he fled to Midian, where he stayed with Jethro the priest, and married his daughter Zipporah, and had a son Gershom.
When he was 80 years old, God appeared before him on Mount Horeb and asked him to lead His people out of Egypt.
