1. What is a motivation to get the best grade point average in school?

To prove that the tests were too easy

It proves you are smarter or better than everyone in your school

Because the top students are usually allowed to skip classes

2. Why do businesses compete in the marketplace?

To be successful in making a profit

To prove they are superior to other companies

To see how much they can push their workers

3. What reward is there if you lose a tough game?

There is no reward for losing

You may get a reward if you accuse opponent of cheating

There is satisfaction if you did your best against a superior foe

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.
