Questions These Days

I haven't had a good laugh in a while about the extent teachers go to to formulate questions for students to try. As I was revising the final leg of my managerial accounting module, this question got me laughing.

Your next-door neighbor recently began a new job as assistant controller for Conundrum Corporation. As her first assignment, she prepared a performance report for January. She was scheduled to present the report to management the next morning, so she brought it home to review. As the two of you chatted in the backyard, she decided to show you the report she had prepared. Unfortunately, your dog thought the report was an object to be fetched. The pup made a flying leap and got a firm grip on the report. After chasing the dog around the block, you managed to wrest the report from its teeth. Needless to say, it was torn to bits. Only certain data are legible on the report. This information follows:
... ... ... 
Feeling guilty, you have agreed to help your neighbor reconstruct the following facts, which will be necessary for her presentation.

With guilt, I quickly scanned through the report once more with a hell lot of missing information and embark on it. Sigh. What guilt does to humans. Lol.
