I’m in college and one of my professors gives us weekly 10 question quizzes. After each quiz, she calls on students to answer each question, and she gives a small bit of extra credit if you answer them correctly out loud.
After every quiz, I join my peers in asking each other about the questions I didn’t know. We are usually pretty loud about it, so she knows we discuss the answers.
Today I was picked to answer a question I hadn’t known on the quiz, and I answered it correctly because one of my friends told me the answer. I had no way of knowing if I would be called on to answer this particular question, and I didn’t want to give the blatant wrong answer, so I gave the correct answer.
Was this wrong of me to do? If it was, how serious was this?
