Charlie was working for the history department fifteen hours a week as a work study student to help cover his expenses. He was also taking a large lecture history class that involved an in-class final exam worth 50% of the grade. Two weeks before finals, the instructor handed out a list of fifteen study questions, explaining that the two final questions would be selected from that list. Charlie was taking a full load of classes, plus his job, and had gotten behind in a couple of his classes. He knew that his grades were going to suffer because there just wasn’t enough time in the day to get caught up. One day he was asked to make copies of some papers on the history department xerox machine. When he opened the lid of the copy machine, he discovered that someone had left a copy of the final for his history class in the machine, and he saw which questions would be on the final.
