I had a Zen professor (real class) that swore this happened, but sounds like an urban myth.
HIS Zen professor gave a one question final exam, telling students there are only three possible grades A, C and F.
The question was "Why?"
Some students wrote "Why not?" and left. (F)
Some wrote long, rationales for existence, and musings on the GodHead, and purpose to question and seek enlightenment and Nirvana. (C)
And one student wrote "Because." (The only A).
The perfect answer to the perfect question.
