Bonus for "no answer"
An ancient proverb says "If you know that you don't know,
you are already a step ahead on the way to knowledge".
Following this principle, the midterm offers a
bonus for "no answer": If you
don't know the solution to one question, you may choose
to give "no answer" (by leaving blank the space for the solution).
For each question to which you give no answer you will receive a
bonus of 10% of the maximum score for that question.
If you start writing the answer, and later you wish you had left it
blank, just draw a line over your answer and write the word "BLANK" in
