Alien beings from a highly advanced society visit the Earth, and
you are the first human they encounter. As a token of
intergalactic friendship, they present you with a small but

a. Present it to the president of the United States
b. Present it to the Secretary General of the United Nations
c. Take it apart and see how it works
