were four students taking organic chemistry at university.
They did so well on all the quizzes, mid-terms, labs and
essays that each had an 'A' so far for the semester. These
four friends were so confident with the finals approaching
that the weekend before they decided to go back to their
hometown and party with some friends there. They had a great
time. However, after all the hard partying, they slept all

the exam and explain to him why they missed it. They explained
that they had gone home to do some study for the weekend
with the plan to come back in time for the exam. But unfortunately,
they had a flat tyre on the way back, didn't have a spare,
and couldn't get help for a long time. As a result, they
had only just arrived now! The professor thought it over
