I am doing the school quiz... First question..

It is a standard policy in most colleges that if a student commits suicide, his or her roommate automatically receives a 4.0 grade point average for the semester.

:rofl:

On the school quiz: You've won 60 total points out of a possible 100.

Ouch! Some were surprising.
