A Bad Student
Peter's father wants to know how his son is getting along in school. One day he asks him;
"Peter, how are you getting along in school? What seat do you have in the class? Does the teacher place you in seats according to your marks?"
"Yes, father. "
"And what seat do you have?" "Number twenty-one. "
"And how many students are there in your class?" "Twenty-one, father. "
Several weeks pass. Peter, who is a bad student and studies very little, brings home the marks of his monthly examinations.
"How are you getting along in school now, Peter?" asks his father. "Your marks do not seem to be very good. "
"I am getting along much better now, father. " "What is your place in the class now?"
"Number twenty now. "
"Good. Then you are one place ahead. "
"No, father. One of the students left the class. His family moved to another town. "
