There is already a similar question but doesn't answer me. My teacher distributed answer sheets today and I felt aggrieved because I was not evaluated properly and deserved more marks. I gave the paper back to teacher and asked for re-evaluation. To this my teacher said:
If I find you deserve more marks, I will award you more marks; not reward you with more marks.
Is this simply a punch dialogue? Is there any grammatical meaning to what my teacher said?
