Joe and Anthony were discussing lakes. Joe says that Lake Superior is the largest lake in the world. Anthony says that Lake Baikal is the largest lake in the world. Who is right?

Answer:

Both can be right because they are not being specific enough. Lake Superior is the largest in the sense of how many square miles it covers. Lake Baikal is the largest in the sense of how deep it is, holding more water than Lake Superior.
