Suppose the man wanted his son dead even though he said "beloved". The only reason he might have said beloved was to avoid the electric chair.

uhm i hate to be a pain, but if the teacher is pleased that the child gave a "grammatically correct" answer, then it *is* the answer that's important, and not just the answering (as per your hint)

i figured it was grammaticlaly incorrect, as in the "father" said "did you kill, my beloved son" liek - old english times when they would hunt, and the boy was timid and afraid to hunt/kill... the real answer is... i dont know, i just dont like it

How is it bad? It IS a trick question. And who are you to judge his teaser? Other people might even think yours are just as bad.

I agree, nothing in the puzzle lead you to believe it was an english course. That was BAD!

Why on Earth did he ask that? The situation they're in doesn't make any sense.
