You have to think about how evidence and proof works. It’s rarely if ever a single “gotcha” but of evidence that, by itself, proves the case.  If you required any more stringent standard than the one expressed in B, then it would be almost impossible to prove anything.

That was a tough one.  You really had to dissect those answers.  They all seemed pretty reasonable to me.

Ya me too. They all seemed to have small nuances that I couldn't parse out. Hence my wrong answer.

I’ll say D. If they had hired a $6k tutor they would have gotten $1k.

 I accedentally saw the answer so I'm out. It's not the choice I would have picked.

I don't see how it's even a contract if there was no consideration.  But the question seems to assume that there was.  If that's the case, she had a duty to mitigate damages and the answer is A.

Yep, I "accidentally" peeked as well.  I went with Thomas, at the  time I listened.

Well the first 2 are out that leaves C or D. I think both of those are a lot alike but different. It just comes down to what the law says to do. The judge can't rule on a rumor and needs to rule on actual action. C says I am not going to rule until the NBS comes up with a standard. D says there is no standard so there is not ruling needed.

I guessed D, because they don't have standing, right?

C. Because the regulations will be subject to judicial review

Why?  They could rule a million different ways that would make the suit moot.
