You take a class in which there are only two exams given (midterm and final). You miss the midterm due to illness and the instructor says that she doesn't give make-up exams when you approach her about taking one. She does however say that she will make your final course grade whatever you get on the final exam. Once that time comes, you receive your grades: 100 percent on the final exam and B in the course.
Would you be extremely disappointed that you didn't get an A since she promised not to penalize you for not taking the midterm, or would you be ecstatic to get a B after not even taking the midterm? Would you think the B grade is fair?
