Seperately, return back rest of the exam sheets. Use a #2 pencil to fill your scantron. Write your code number and bubble it in under ““EXAM NUMBER””. Bubble in the exam version (see letter A--H at bottom of page) in your scantron under ““TEST VERSION””. MULTIPLE CHOICE. Choose the one alternative that best completes the statement or answers the question. 1) A boat, whose speed in still water is 2.70 m/s, must cross a 280m wide river and arrive at a point 120m upstream from where it starts.
