13 Points score 200 Your answers to this exam are to be only your own work. You may use no written
information during this test period other than the eight pages of this exam. You may not
use the back of any pages for answers. Up to one week after your exam is returned you
may submit it for regrading if and only if you have made NO marks on the exam except
for a star (*) next to the number(s) above of the question(s) you would like regraded.
