Mini-Quiz: Cheating Used in Some Competitions

by Ron Kurtus (8 June 2007)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. Is using a special golf ball that flies further than your opponent's ball cheating?

Yes, because it gives you an unfair advantage

It compensates for him using a special golf club that you don't have

Not unless there is a rule against using such a ball

2. Is deceiving customers on a benefits of a new vitamin pill cheating?

Yes, because such deception is against the law

Not if the customer shoplifts the vitamin bottle from the store

No, because the expression "buyer beware" holds

3. If preventing people from voting cheating in the election?

Yes, especially if it is done in secret

Actually, that is considered dirty play

No, because some people don't deserve to vote

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Winning Competitions. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
