The contraption, called the Odón Device, works like this: A doctor fits a plastic bag inside a lubricated plastic sleeve and fits it around the babys head. The bag is then inflated, allowing it to grip on the baby head, pulling until its emerged from the birth canal

saying, I dont want to appear ungrateful for such an outstanding
result, but I wonder if there is an error in the grade?
The instructor said, During the exam, you took the engine apart
perfectly, which was worth 50% of the total mark. You put the engine
back together again perfectly, which is also worth 50% of the mark.
After a pause, the instructor added, I gave you an extra 50% because
