If you believe that insufficient information has been provided to answer
a given question, then you should write any assumptions that you think are
necessary to complete the question and continue work from there. If the
assumptions are reasonable, you can still obtain full marks for the question.

Note that marks are awarded primarily for working, not just for getting
the correct final answer. If you get an incorrect final answer in one part
of a question and use it in a later part of that question, it is still possible
to achieve full marks for the later part if all working is correct.

For programming questions, you can only receive full marks for a
correctly-working program that compiles with no warnings. If you simply
submit the supplied file or if your program has compilation warnings/errors,
then it is worth zero marks. A program that compiles but does not produce
the expected result will receive partial-mark based on how close it is
to being correct.
