To all who read this, pretend—

—you are a member of this class. For your term paper, which will be your final exam, you are to write answers to these two questions: (1) How many grandfathers do you have? (2) What is the name, or title, of this course of study? Write the answers as ‘COMMENTS’. I am hoping there will be some ingenious people responding and at least one genius, who gets it all.

An exercise for the Deliberative Mind.
