Question about incorrect client/server response cycle question
Doesn't the answer (game server asking for high score and the game and the client return the information) fit the description "sending request and receiving information"? Does it have to be client who send the request and server provides the information and not the other way around?

In general, yes, the client initiates the exchange. One exception is push technology where the server already has a relationship to the server and the server can push information to the client without being asked.
