The valedictorian reported for his university final examination which consisted of "yes/no" type questions. He took his seat in the examination hall and stared at the question paper for five minutes.

Within half an hour he was all done, whereas the rest of the class was still sweating it out. During the last few minutes, he was seen desperately throwing the coin, muttering and sweating.
