Why planning is important?

        Here is a story, which is quoted as a true story of four college students of IIT-Bombay (Batch 1992-96), that describes why planning is necessary. The story goes like :

        One Night 4 college students were playing till late night and could not study for the test which was scheduled for the next day. 

        In the morning they thought of a plan. They made themselves look as dirty with grease and dirt. They then went up to the Dean and said that they had gone out to a wedding last night and on their return the tyre of their car burst and they had  to push the car all the way back and that they were in no condition to  appear for the test.

        So the Dean said they can have the re-test after 3 days. They thanked him and said they will be ready by  that time.

        On the third day they appeared before the Dean. The Dean said that as this was a Special Condition Test, All four were required to sit in separate classrooms for the  test. They all agreed as they had prepared well in the last 3 days.

        The Test consisted of 2 questions  with the total of 100 Marks.

             Q.1. Your Name.........................( 2   Marks )

             Q.2. Which tyre burst?................( 98 Marks )

                 a) Front Left

                 b) Front Right

                 c) Back Left

                 d) Back Right.....!!!

        All four Q2 Answers are different!!!!!!! (No need to mention the results of the 4 students.)
