“The Flat Tire Story”
At Duke University, there were four sophomores taking organic chemistry. They did so well on all the quizzes, midterms and labs that each had an "A" so far for the semester. These four friends were so confident that the weekend before finals they decided to go up to the University of Virginia and party with some friends up there. They had a great time, however, and after all the hearty drinking and partying; they slept all day Sunday and didn't make it back to Duke until early Monday morning.
Rather than take the 100-point final then, they decided to find their professor after the final and explain to him why they missed it.
They explained that they had gone to UVA for the weekend with the plan to return to study, but, unfortunately, they had a flat tire on the way back, didn't have a spare, and couldn't get help for a long time. As a result, they missed the final.
The professor thought it over and then agreed they could make up the final the following day. The guys were elated and relieved. They studied that night and went in the next day at the time the professor had told them. He placed them in separate rooms and handed each of them a test booklet and told them to begin.
They opened their exam booklets to discover a single question: (For 100 points): Which tire?
