Text books:
Microeconomics (Global Edition), 9th ed., Robert S. Pindyck & Daniel L. Rubinfeld, Pearson/Prentice Hall.
Managerial Economics, 5th ed., Ivan Png, Taylor & Francis.

A bonus game theory question in the final exam as below,

Choose 5 free extra marks or 2 marks.
– You get whichever extra marks you chose if
less than 20% of all students chose 5 marks.
– Otherwise, no one gets any extra marks

Before the exam, we discussed in the what’s app group that all of us will choose 2 marks, but there was no miracle! after the exam, the professor told us twelve students picked 5 marks, which makes (12/49)x100 = 24.49%. So all the students got 0 mark for this question, quite interesting.

I guess the game theory wins. Or some of the students are from earlier batches and not in the what’s app group, they didn’t receive the agreement about the discussed deal.
