    At Duke University, there were four sophomores taking Organic Chemistry.
    They were doing so well on all the quizzes, midterms and labs, etc., 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 there. They had a great
    time, but after all the hearty partying, they slept all day Sunday and
    didn't make it back to Duke until early Monday morning. Rather than taking
    the 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 come back in time 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 looked at the first problem, worth five points. It was something simple
    about free radical formation. "Cool," they thought at the same time, each
    one in his separate room, "this is going to be easy." Each finished the
    problem and then turned the page.

    On the second page the second problem was written:
    (For 95 points):
    Which tire?
