YAY 4 SKOOL

I wish this was hypothetical:
You have to do a group research project for school (college) and make a presentation to the class. You're marked as a group, and it's worth 20% of your final grade for the term.
It becomes apparent that one member of your 3 person group is an incompetent fuck-up, to an alarming degree. They've done no reading at all on the subject and have zero notes. You discover this too late, however, to inform the teacher since it's due monday and you've gathered together to create the presentation on the weekend. Don't you love group work?
What would you do, oh TQC?

A) Stay late with the other (competent) group member and fill in the holes, finish the fuck-ups part, give them a minimum portion of the actual  presentation time. Get high mark.

B) Keep the presentation divided into 3 equal parts (like you originally planned), let them crash and burn in front of the class during their part. Sacrifice high mark.

What would you do?

option A, fix it all up nice!
47(74.6%)
option B, crash n' burn!
16(25.4%)

and furthermore...

fixing it up for them is morally questionable
41(80.4%)
letting them crash and burn is morally questionable
10(19.6%)
