Organization" , a student goes and confronts his
lecturer about it.

Student: "Sir, do you really understand anything about
the subject?"

Professor: "Surely I must. Otherwise I would not be a

Student: "Great, well then I would like to ask you a
question. If you can give me the correct answer, I
will accept my mark as is and go. If you however do
