In order to install this package, you need to demonstrate your ability
to make sound decisions:

(1) Please click the term of the following equation that represents the
Maxwell Correction of Ampere's loop law:

The [Divergence of the magnetic field] is equal to the [permittivity times
the charge density] plus the [the partial time derivative of the
electric field times a constant]

(2) When Compiz by default was deferred from Feisty, did you cry?
    [Yes]  [No]

(3) How do you install VLC Media Player?
   [A] VLC Media Player permits playback of patent encumbered non-free
audio formats and is a moral sin to even consider installing.
   [B] Double-click Automatix, choose Media Player and Editors, then
check VLC Media Player and press the orange Start button.
