At Sydney University, there were four students studying Organic Chemistry. They were excellent students achieving “A’s”. They were so confident they decided to go to Canberra and party with some friends the weekend before their finals.
However, they slept through Sunday, and didn’t get back to Sydney until early Monday morning. Rather than taking their examination, they decided to miss the exam and explain to their professor hoping to take the exam the next day.
They explained that they had gone to Canberra had a flat tyre on the way back and couldn’t get help for a long time. As a result, they’d only just got back.
The professor thought it over and agreed they could do their exam the next day. They were elated and relieved. They studied hard all night turning up on time.
He placed them in separate rooms and handed each of them the exam paper. The first question was worth five points and was stupid simple for grade A students. They eagerly turned over the page for Question Two,
Question Two (for 95 points): Which tyre?
