Q:"''Nous sommes professeurs.'' Who can be speaking?" A: "Georges" - Why?
This question relates to:French lesson "Job titles differ depending on whether you're a man or a woman (nouns)"

I agree, James, the question is poorly phrased. It can be interpreted in a way that all choices are correct, i.e., Georges is speaking and referring to an (unmentioned) group of people.
But even without this, the question doesn't really test whether you can distinguish the male or female version of professeur. It just tests whether you know that sommes refers to more than one person.
