8) You are a school teacher teaching science at a local school. Your son studies in the same school. You were given responsibility to conduct science fair in the school. Two winners who create best models would be sent to participate at the district level, where if they win will have chance to participate at state level in the state capital. Your son is an intelligent student and hard working too. You suggest him to participate in the fair. You tell him that you would provide all assistance in preparing a unique working model that would definitely win the first prize. Your son who is studying in 9th standard tells you that he would love to participate but he does not want to. He says that some of his friends and their teachers always taunt that he gets good marks in exams because of his father’s influence. They have also told him that he gets to know the question papers beforehand and hence score full marks in all science and mathematics tests. He tells you that if he wins in this science fair he will be again accused of cheating. Therefore, he says, is not willing to participate in any competition in that school.
