1 "A" student based on 5 previous assignments,

expletives to another student and starts a fight. He claims
that the other student was trying to copy from him.
A student comes in late to your class every time and
always has a funny look. One day you see him outside of
the campus with several students known to use drugs. Next

with the other student.
