The four students
Author Unknown

One night four students were out late and didn’t study for the test scheduled for the next day. In the morning, they thought of a plan. They covered themselves with grease and dirt and went to the principal. The students told him they had gone to a wedding the previous night and on their way back they got a flat tire and had to push the car all the way back. They argued that they were in no condition to take the test.

The principal thought for a minute and said they could re-take the test in three days. They thanked him and said they would be ready by that time.

On the third day, they showed up ready to take the test. The principal said that it was a Special Condition Test and the students were required to sit in separate classrooms. They all agreed and felt ready to take the test.

The test consisted of only two questions with the total of 100 points.

1) Your Name __________ (1 Points)

2) Which tire was flat? __________ (99 Points)

Options – (a) Front Left (b) Front Right (c) Back Left (d) Back Right

 

Moral: Be responsible for your actions and always tell the truth.
