Accompanying this written exam is a five-page case study on the topic of Ruth Owades’ mail-order specialty gardening tool idea, which has also been graded and initialed on the first page in red ink by Musk, “8 1/2, EM.” The future Tesla CEO checked off all of the critical points made throughout the paper, without adding any comments.
