On the first day of college, the Dean addressed the students, pointing out some of the rules.

“The female hostel will be prohibited for all male students, and the male dormitory to the female students. Anybody caught breaking this rule will be fined $50 the first time.”

He continued, “Anybody caught breaking this rule the second time will be fined $100. Being caught a third time will incur a hefty fine of $200. Are there any questions?”

At this, a male student in the crowd inquired, “How much for a season pass?”
