Many of us were expecting tricky identification items and difficult problem solving parts that require complex solutions. After receiving my strip of paper, the following similar questions appeared:

 

1. Answer… in one to two sentences.
2. Describe… in one to two sentences.
3. Compare… in one to two sentences.

 

After copying all the questions and providing written answers below, written output consumed only about half of the first page. hehehehe..

An excerpt from Mr. Kisuke:

I’m disappointed Ichigo, so very disappointed. Sadly, your sword exhibits only fear.

When you counter, it’s because you fear being killed. When you attack, you fear killing. And when you try to protect someone, you fear you could let them die.

At this point, the only thing your sword speaks of… is senseless freight. And that’s not good.

What you do not need in battle is fear. Nothing come of it.

When you counter, you don’t let them cut you. When you protect someone, you don’t let them die, when you attack, you kill. Understand? Can you see, my sheer resolve is reflected in my sword.

(after some battle…)

Oh yeah! You got it, resolve.

A true friend…

A true friend is a special someone who encourages us to be ourselves, accepts who we really are and directly informs that we’ve done something wrong rather than seeing us tolerating it.

Practice makes perfect???

They say practice makes perfect but nobody is perfect, so why practice?

- I just heard it elsewhere. 
But according to our logic class, this syllogism can be classified
as a certain kind of fallacy.

When development stops

When someone perceives something as perfect, improvement ends.
