    I've been looking like a complete tit for the past hour by saying 'Percy Li' in a variety of different tones, accents, volumes and speeds in order to see if OCR chucked in another pun (remember Roland Kneede the baker and Rhoda Raghe the avid driver with a horrendously contrived surname?). Anybody made any progress?

    iirc the question was about road maintenance?
    It was about railways and track maintenance, I thought it was a little shoutout to Thomas the Tank Engine which was going through my head during the exam

    Woah...

    Maybe the Chinese surname is an allusion to the Chinese Postman algorithm (which was the basis of the question)? The plot thickens....

    Yeah, I swear another of the people mentioned in the question was named Gordon too, although I might just be imagining things at this point

    I saw yours, I planned to save mine but got pressed for time (damn q4). I dunno about some of them though I recall getting 89 for 6 part something I see you got 88 - that may have just been a typo. But yeah hopefully someone else can verify things

    Don't fret! Just move on and concentrate on c3 + 4! No point stressing when you can't change it, but I bet you'll surprise yourself on results day <3

    There wasnt a 6iiib think you mean a question on 7, i put through L 7 times I believe, as it had 6 arcs and one repeated through it, wasnt 100 percent on it though

    Thats right thinking about it know, it'll be half 6 as you leave to make 2 arcs, then plus the one from repeating. :/

    1 arc doesn't mean it went through L once, does it? Surely to have 'gone through' L it needs to have gone in on an arc, and then left on another arc

    So did I, as every two arcs would mean going through once.

    I made such a stupid mistake haha, the order of L was 8 so I put that down as the answer forgetting to half it. Overall a really nice paper tho
